MAP Assessments

What is MAP?

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) is a computerized adaptive assessment that provides detailed, actionable data about where each child is on their unique learning path.

MAP was created by NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association), a non-profit organization.  Their goal is the development of a formative testing system that responds dynamically to the child, and gives educators detailed insight into each student's learning.
