What is MAP testing?
Measures of Academic Progress, or MAP, are computer-based assessments that measure achievement, growth and can project proficiency on high-stakes tests. In Leominster, these assessments are given to all students K-10 in Reading and K-8 in Mathematics. Testing takes place in the Fall and Spring, with some schools opting to monitor student progress in the Winter as well. MAP is a computer based adaptive measure, meaning that the assessments are grade independent and adapt to each individual student’s instructional level. This allows teachers and other educators to see a student’s precise learning level and respond accordingly. It is used as a tool to help students, parents, and teachers identify strengths and opportunities, and focus instruction on the greatest areas of need. MAP is considered a reliable and valid measure of student academic growth on the current academic standards in both Reading and Mathematics. It provides valuable information to inform how educators differentiate instruction, evaluate programs and structure curriculum.
What do we use MAP testing for?
Teachers use MAP testing as an additional method to assess student learning. Often we use MAP data to help us decide groupings for advanced learning, enrichment activities, or intervention in a subject area. For example, for the MAP Reading test, we use the data to help us form our Reading Intervention groups and our Foreign Language groups. Teacher observation and feedback are also utilized, yet MAP data gives us information to make data based decisions as well.
