NWEA MAP Testing
The NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a state-aligned, computerized, adaptive assessment used to measure a student’s growth in reading, language usage, and mathematics. As the student is taking the computerized assessment, the difficulty of each question is adapted based on how well the student answers all the previous questions, so that each student takes a unique test. The final score is an estimate of the student’s achievement level, measured by a Rasch Unit Score (RIT Score). The RIT score is unrelated to the age or grade of the student, but reflects the level at which the student is currently performing. The RIT scores are norm-based. Testing occurs twice yearly, in the fall and spring.
