Time to Measure Academic Progress

in MATH with the MAP test

What is this test?

Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) – These computerized tests are adaptive and offered in Reading, Language Usage, and Mathematics. When taking a MAP® test, the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all the previous questions. As the student answers correctly, questions become more difficult. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier. In an optimal test, a student answers approximately half the items correctly and half incorrectly. The final score is an estimate of the student’s achievement level.

Taken 3 times a year & only takes on average 45-60 minutes

Here's what we are doing in Mrs. Lenihan's Math Class to prepare

Our next WINTER MAPS testing is just around the corner! Are you ready to bump up your score? Use this link http://www.sowashco.org/ro/pages/studentlinks/map/ or open below and your score from the fall to direct you to fun games and practice!


Your goal: practice each night for 15 minutes. Have an adult at home initial if you completed this and receive a punch! If you get the whole card punched, you’ll receive a HOMEWORK PASS and a new card to keep practicing!

This is what the web site LOOKS like!

Every student has had a GOAL SETTING SESSION with me & have a personalized GOAL SHEET. Ask them to SHARE it with you!

The GOAL SHEETS have the number range where students are to PLAY!
