The MAP assessment consists of both Reading and Math portions, and is administered to students in grades 1-8 multiple times each year. It is one of the ways teachers and administrators collect data on student academic growth throughout the school year. The collected data can then be used to help cater instruction and support for the specific needs of each student.
The MAP assessment is unique in that it is adaptive and will adjust according to student responses. This means the questions become more difficult as your child answers correctly, or become less difficult if your child answers a question incorrectly. Therefore, your child takes an assessment targeted specifically to their learning level. Additionally, the MAP assessment is aligned with the Common Core State Standards, which is reflected in our English/Language Arts and Math curricula.
