This NWEA MAP testing tool is used within our district. This tool is linked to numbers from the NWEA ACT Study and NWEA KPREP Study. If you do not live in the state of Kentucky you can still find a study correlating MAP RIT to achievement on your state's test and adjust the numbers. This tool is great for goal setting because it gives the average growth numbers and each student's goal before the next test should be to improve to the next color. The colors are also an excellent visual to hang in classrooms and to display throughout the school. Also our district does not give MAP to grades 9-12 but those could also be easily added for schools that do. In addition to this tool, please check out the MAP Data Analysis Tool which can be purchased to input district-wide, school-wide, and classroom data to ensure your district, school, and classroom is on track for high achievement on state-testing and college/career readiness.
