NWEA Measures of Academic Progress
The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computer adaptive test in which students get a unique set
of test questions based on responses to previous questions. As the student answers correctly, questions get harder; if the student answers incorrectly, the questions get easier. The test is given three times per year to students in grades K-12 so that schools and teachers can see the ongoing progress of individual students and of classes as a whole. Data from the test is often used to help students set goals and understand what they need to learn to achieve their goals.
The NWEA MAP test is not to be confused with the Mississippi Assessment Program (MAP) which is a statewide assessment for English Language Arts and Mathematics for grades 3-8 and Algebra I and English II. Click here for more information about the Mississippi Assessment Program.
