Map Scores are in

Map scores are now available. Teachers will be visiting one-on-one with students to discuss their scores and to set goals. Students should be bringing their reports home this next week.



Did you know?

  1. Most schools administer MAP Growth three times per year – in fall, winter, and spring.
  2. As the student answers correctly, questions get harder. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions get easier. By the end of the test, students will have answered enough questions to inform a teacher about what they know and what they’re ready to learn.
  3. MAP Growth is grade independent, which means teachers and parents can see where a child is performing relative to grade level – not merely if they are at grade level or not.
  4. MAP Growth assesses math, reading, language usage, and science.
  5. MAP Growth takes less than an hour to complete – but is not timed. Students can take as much time as needed.
  6. The score your child receives is called a RIT score. You’ll be able to see your child’s RIT score progress from test to test, and year to year.
  7. The RIT score can be connected to online resources, such as Khan Academy for math exercises and YourReadingPath.com to determine what books might be at the appropriate reading level. You can even plug their RIT score into our College Explorer tool to see what colleges your child is on track to attend.
