    Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

    The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment is taken on a computer and typically requires about an hour each for math and reading. The assessment measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning.


    The assessment is being phased out in upper grades in favor of Smarter Balanced interims, but MAP is still required once a year for grades K-2. Students identified as Title I/LAP will be required to take the test over the course of the year to meet state and federal funding requirements. 

    Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge. The results also may be a factor in Advanced Learning eligibility determinations.
