Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)
Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computerized adaptive assessment program that provides teachers with information they can use to improve teaching and learning. MAP measures academic growth over time, independent of grade level or age.
The MAP Assessment is a formative assessment used by the district to provide the instructional level of each student in Language Arts and Math in grades 1-6. This information is shared with parents and teachers so that student progress can be monitored by all stakeholders in the educational process. The assessment results are intended for use by teachers as a diagnostic measure answering the following questions: Where is a student right now? Where does the student need to go next in his learning path? How do I get him or her there? Therefore, every student’s instruction is tailored to suit his or her needs.
