MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) tests determine a child’s instructional level and measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of Language Usage, Reading and Math. Children take the tests on a computer. At UGES we collect MAP data during September, January and May.
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for a child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. With MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests that use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about a child’s growth.
