    MAP Growth Reading: Grades K-3


    MAP stands for Measures of Academic Progress. MAP Growth is a computer-adaptive benchmark assessment that provides a different, personalized test for each student. Depending on how a student answers each question, the test adjusts in difficulty. This allows students with widely varying skill levels – from struggling to advanced – to take a test that is well-suited to their needs. Teachers are able to access results immediately after a test is completed. Each test provides detailed teacher reports that show skills students are proficient in and what they are ready to work on next.

    When are students assessed?

    • Grades 1-3 are assessed once each term - fall, winter, and spring
    • Kindergarten students are assessed once each term - winter and spring
