What Is MAP?
The MAP assessment (Measures of Academic Progress) measures academic growth in the areas of reading and mathematics and estimates a student’s instructional readiness for particular content. MAP tests are computer adaptive; they adjust to a student’s specific learning level. When a student answers questions correctly, he/she is presented with more challenging questions. When a student responds incorrectly, the questions are adjusted accordingly. Students in 1st grade will take the MAP for Primary Grades assessment and students in Grades 2-5 will take their grade level appropriate MAP assessment.

How is MAP data used?
MAP data provides our educators with helpful information regarding a student’s academic strengths and areas for improvement in reading and math. Collaborative teams of teachers, specialists, and administrators use the MAP results and other data points to check the progress of individual students and groups of students for the purpose of making instructional decisions and adjustments.
