2016 Spring NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessments and Findings
MAP assessments are given to all K-8th grade students three times a year (Fall, Winter and Spring) and are used to measure a student's academic progress and growth in mathematics, reading, language usage and science skills. For the primary grades, these computerized tests provide teachers with an efficient way to assess academic achievement levels of early learners so they can spend more time teaching and less time administering individual diagnostic tests. The test results also provide information to guide instruction during the early stages of the student's academic career; and it identifies the needs of all primary grade students.

When taking a MAP test the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all previous questions. As the student answers correctly, the questions become more difficult. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier. The final score is an estimate of the student's achievement level.
