Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)
MAP is a nationally-normed growth assessment that identifies the amount of learning that has occurred between each test administration (fall, winter and spring). Students are tested in the areas of mathematics, language usage and reading. Each test takes students about an hour to complete. Results are available immediately following the test.
The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA)--a non-profit organization that has been developing adaptive tests since 1974, created MAP assessments. More than 24 million MAP assessments have been administered nationwide. For more information about NWEA and MAP assessments, visit www.nwea.org.
