MAP (Measures of Academic Progress)

FAQs

What is MAP?

The MAP Growth Assessment (Measures of Academic Progress) is given in both reading and math in grades K-8 as well as in Algebra I, English I, and English II. The science assessment is also given at grades 5 and 8. MAP assessments help teachers guide instruction and give campuses information about what the students are ready to learn.

Why does the district administer MAP?

The district utilizes the MAP assessment to support our student academic growth goals. They are not tests of mastery and are not administered for grades.

When is the MAP assessment administered?

Students take the assessments three times a year. Campuses are given a window of time to give the assessments, and they can schedule to fit their needs within that time frame. Here are windows that that assessments will be administered for the school year:

  • Beginning of the Year- September 9-16
  • Middle of the Year – January 9-17
  • End of the Year- May 8-15

How is the MAP assessment given?

The MAP assessment is administered online, and a report will be shared with you to show your student’s assessment results. The report will give you a summary of your student’s performance academically as evidenced by the most recent MAP Growth assessment. It will also show you your student’s growth over time and will show you how your student is progressing compared to other students at the same grade level across the district and the nation.

If I have questions about MAP, who should I contact?

Please contact your student’s classroom teacher if you have questions about how to read the reports or what the next steps will be in supporting your child’s academic success.
