We are off to a great year and continue to operate under a new normal. We are excited to offer opportunities for students to show what they are ready to learn by participating in the NWEA MAP Growth assessments. These evaluations guide teachers on how to help students continue to learn. We will begin assessing students in grades K – 12 in the next week. Each school may have a different schedule. We want to help you prepare your child for the MAP test. You can help your child by watching the videos below and helping your child take a practice test. Your child’s school will contact you regarding the test schedule.
WHAT IS MAP GROWTH?
MAP Growth helps teachers understand what students know today, so goals can be set to improve growth throughout the year. Students cannot pass or fail this test.
This test will not affect grades. In fact, it’s normal for students to only answer about half the questions correctly. Please don't help them!
Given the challenges of learning from home, MAP Growth test results are especially helpful for us this year. These results will help us know what students are ready to learn.
