Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) are standardized tests taken on the computer. The MAP tests are formative assessments that help determine your child’s instructional level and are used to measure academic growth from year to year in the areas of reading and mathematics.

MAP tests are unique in that they adjust to a student’s performance.  For example, the difficulty of each question is based on how well the student has answered the previous questions up to that point.  As the student answers questions correctly, the questions become more difficult. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier.  As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. Also, with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth.
