Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

These computerized tests are adaptive and offered in Reading, Language Usage, and Mathematics. When taking a MAP test, the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all the previous questions.

As the student answers correctly, questions become more difficult. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier. In an optimal test, a student answers approximately half the items correctly and half incorrectly. The final score is an estimate of the student’s achievement level.

MAP test are conducted three times during the school year, typically:

  • Mid-Late September

  • Mid January

  • Late April-Early May
