Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing is taking place until September 17. MAP are K-12 interim assessments that provide essential information about a student’s continuum of learning and growth trajectory. This is also a tool to help identify strengths and opportunities and focus instruction on the areas of greatest need. Computer adaptive MAP assessments reveal precisely which academic skills and concepts the student has acquired and what he/she is ready to learn. MAP assessments are grade independent and adapt to each student’s instructional level. Every item on a MAP assessment is anchored to a vertically aligned equal interval scale, called the RIT scale for Rasch UnIT-a stable measurement, like inches on a ruler that covers all grades. Because the measurement is reliable and accurate, RIT scores serve as an essential data point in a student’s learning plan; educators can see their precise learning level and respond accordingly.
