During the month of January, your child took a MAP® Growth™ test from NWEA® on a computer. We give students MAP Growth tests to determine their instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year (and from year to year) in Math, Reading, and Science (MS Only). MAP Growth tests are unique in that they adapt to your child’s level of learning. If your child answers a question correctly, the next question is more challenging. If they answer incorrectly, the next one is easier. The result is a detailed picture of what your child knows and is ready to learn—whether it is on, above, or below their grade level.
