Measures of Academic Progress - MAP

  • Created by educators for educators, MAP assessments provide detailed, actionable data about where each child is on their unique learning path. Because student engagement is essential to any testing experience, NWEA works with educators to create test items that interest children and help to capture detail about what they know and what they’re ready to learn. It’s information teachers can use in the classroom to help every child, every day. The assessment is provided three times a year for students in grades 3-8. We have more information for you about MAP.

    Using these tests, teachers can:

    • Assess achievement levels of early learners so they can spend more time teaching and less time administering individual diagnostic tests.
    • Provide rich information to begin guiding a student's academic career thereby increasing the chances for early academic success.
    • Identify the needs of all primary students and inform individualized instruction.
    • Encourage student participation with engaging test items.
