What is MAP Growth?
In the wake of instructional challenges faced over the past two school years, NWEA, the Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER) at the American Institutes for Research (AIR), and the Center for Education Policy and Research (CEPR) at Harvard University have partnered with a coalition of large school districts across the country to help determine which COVID recovery interventions are working and to what extent.
