NWEA MAP Assessment System

Our Students Achieve Exceptional Results

We Are Academically Excellent...

Grades 3-7 are given the NWEA MAP Growth interim assessment in math, reading, and language three times a year (i.e. Fall, Winter, Spring). These tests have replaced the Terra Nova. MAP Growth is a computer adaptive test that provides teachers and parents with immediate information to help deliver appropriate content for each student and determine each student's academic growth over time. Teachers will be able to see the progress of individual students and of their class as a whole. School leadership can see the progress of a grade level, school, or the entire district. Spring scores will also be used for measurement against national and local groups, and will be used for qualifying benchmarks for programs like DUKE TIP, GATES and Blue Ribbon status.

Since students with similar MAP Growth scores are generally ready for instruction in similar skills and topics, the data provides teachers with good information to plan instruction. MAP Growth also provides typical growth data for students who are in the same grade, subject, and have the same starting performance level. This data is often used to help students set goals and understand what they need to learn to achieve their goals.
