MAP Growth


(December)

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) is a computer adaptive assessment selected by the school district for use in elementary and middle schools. As students progress through the test, it adjusts automatically to the performance level of each student: correct answers trigger a more challenging item to be presented next; if a student misses a question, the follow-up item is easier. MAP is unlimited in terms of how far up or down it adapts to determine an individual student’s level. This ability helps teachers pinpoint each student’s learning level on core concepts and provides the information they need to differentiate instruction to the precise level of each student including those most at risk. MAP covers mathematics, reading, and language usage. Read more about Measures of Academic Progress.
