Measures of Academic Progress – MAP
MAP is an assessment tool that helps parents view their student’s progress and compare their scores to others around the country and in the district in their same grade. Not only does MAP provide basic information, it also has a lot of instructional information and suggestions for families and advisors. Lastly, there are many other resources that utilize MAP’s scoring guides to help create specific units of study for students in different areas.
The goal of this area is to help parents know what some of those resources are and how to access them once your student has taken the MAP assessment.
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level—precisely measuring student progress and growth for each individual.
