Measures of Academic Progress (MAPS) Testing:
Understanding each student’s academic level gives teachers the power to help them excel. Students in kindergarten through 8th grade take the MAP computerized adaptive assessments three times each school year. This tool helps make it possible for our educators to gather detailed information to build curriculum and meet individual student needs, one child at a time.
The benefits of NWEA MAPs are:
- Tests are administered in Reading, Math, Language Usage, and Science
- MAPs are adaptable per student. This truly assists in diagnosing each student’s achievement and ability levels.
- Detailed information regarding each student is available for staff and parents within 24 hours of testing.
- Individualized plans with target growth areas are identified.
- MAPs allows for student, school, diocesan and “norm group” reporting.
- MAPs allows for comparison scores to other standardized assessments such as the PSAT and M-Step state assessment.
- MAPs provides an “RIT to Reading Range Report” for each student. The Reading Range Report provides a reading range for each student tested with links to reading resources.
