Students in grades 6-8 take an online assessment 3x/year called the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). Our teachers use the NWEA MAP test results to determine students’ instructional needs and to measure academic growth throughout the school year and from year to year in the areas of Reading, English Language Arts, and Math.
MAP assessments are computer-adaptive, meaning the test questions change based on how the student responds to questions. This enables the test to pinpoint your child’s specific needs. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. Following each testing period, parents receive a report showing your child’s results.
This year, Terryville High School students created a video to help parents understand NWEA reports. Click here to view the video.
