NWEA MAP Testing

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Parent Tool Kit Manual

MAP tests are taken by over 11 million students across the United States each year. The MAP test is used in the determination of your child’s current instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year in the areas of English, Reading, and Mathematics. Your child will take the tests on a computer.

MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. Over the testing period, your child will spend a total of about 3-4 hours completing these tests. You will receive a report on your child’s MAP performance after each testing period, and following the spring testing period of each year, you will receive a report showing your child’s overall growth.

Focusing on the achievement and growth of every student is a top priority at Keeneyville District 20. Partnering to help all kids learn, parents and teachers can have a profound positive effect on the lives of our children.
