Measures of Academic Progress

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. 

Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate and predictive (in graded test levels) of proficiency on the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA). The results also 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.
