Directions for MAP

What is MAP Growth?

MAP Growth helps teachers understand what students know today, so goals can be set to improve growth throughout the year. Students cannot pass or fail this test.

This test will not affect grades. In fact, it’s normal for students to only answer about half the questions correctly. Please don’t help them.

Given the challenges of learning from home, MAP Growth test results are especially helpful for us this year. These results will help us know what students are ready to learn.
