When: 3 times per year: August, December, May

Where: Join a testing session through the student account. See instructions below.

Why: assessment tool to measure student growth over time

OVCA Goal is for every student to achieve one year's growth.


How to Login:

Students are only able to log in when they are in a testing session.

  • Log into student account. https://login-learn.k12.com/#login
  • Join testing session in CC schedule.
  • Click https://test.mapnwea.org/#/nopopup
  • Use the Session Name and password provided by the test proctor.
  • Once inside the session, students choose their name and confirm their information.
  • They will need to wait for the proctor to confirm that they can start.


Additional NWEA MAP Information:


  • You must enable pop-up blockers on the NWEA Login Page before taking the assessment.
  • Screen resolution MUST be set to 1024x768 or the assessment will not run. You can return it to your preferred or default setting after you are finished with the tests.
  • The MAP Diagnostic Assessment is NOT a graded assessment.
  • Students are not permitted to have assistance on the assessment as we need to have a baseline of what students know/don't know in Math and Reading. This will help us place them in the classes that will help them GROW the MOST as readers and math problem solvers!
  • It is recommended that students take no longer than 75 minutes on the test. We need to know what students already know quickly, not what they can figure out after a long period of time. Please prepare your student for this, and remind them that after 3 minutes, they should make their educated guess, and move to the next question.
