What is MAP testing?

Untitled-1

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 him or her 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!

Students at The Learning Center MAP test twice a year. Your student is taking them now (or will be soon) and again in early Spring. If you have further questions about MAP testing, feel free to call the front office at (828)835-7240 or email MAP Coordinator, Cheryl Catuto at cheryl@naturallygrownkids.org.
