What is MAP Testing?


You have probably heard your student talking about MAP testing. Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) is a computerized adaptive testing system that tailors tests to a student’s achievement level.


Each student takes a test that is dynamically developed for them as the test is being administered. The program instantly analyzes the student’s response to each test question and, based on how well the student has answered all previous questions, selects a question of appropriate difficulty to display next. If your child answers a question correctly, the test follows up with a more challenging question. If your child answers incorrectly, the test follows up with an easier question. By delivering precise, real-time information about every student’s learning triumphs and challenges, both teachers and students are set up for success!


MAP is used to measure a student's progress or growth in school. The testing information is important to teachers because it indicates a student's strengths as well as areas that a student needs additional instruction and practice. Teachers can use this information to help them guide instruction in the classroom.
