Accountability, Research, and Measurement
NWEA MAP Assessment Information and Resources

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) is a dynamic, interim assessment that measures what students know and what they are ready to learn.    

The test is adaptive meaning that it will adjust depending on the student's responses.  This means that no two tests are the same and that the test can only be taken on computer.    

The test is untimed as the system will continue to present questions to the student until such time that enough information has been collected from the student's responses to assess the students baseline knowledge or growth (depending on the time of year).    

This tool was NOT developed to measure mastery of standards.  It was developed to measure growth over time. 

The testing windows for the 2021-2022 school year are:

  • Fall – August 12-September 3
  • Winter – November 29-December 16
  • Spring – April 4-April 22

Students in the following grades/courses will take the below assessments:

  • Grades K-2/language arts and math
  • Grades 3-8/language arts, math and science
  • High School – 9th and 10th grade language arts, Algebra, and Geometry
