What is MAP?

Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computer adaptive test which provides information to your teacher on what you are ready to learn.  Students in grades 3-8 should plan to take two MAP tests this August: reading and math.  High school students enrolled in English 9 and English 10 should take the MAP reading test, and students in Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry should take the test which matches their math course. Some students will take an additional MAP test for language usage later in September.


What to expect with home MAP testing?

  • It's important to give your best effort on this test. It's a chance to show what you know. Your teacher will use this to choose what you are ready to learn next.

  • You will need a quiet place where you can test with minimal distractions.  It is recommended that you should complete each test in one sitting.

  • This is not a timed test, so it's important to take your time to understand each question before answering. The test usually takes 45-75 minutes to finish. You should keep working until your score is displayed on the screen.

  • Some questions will be easy, and others will be more difficult. It's okay not to know all the answers. Read every question and try your best, but do not spend too much time on any one question. It's OK to make a guess if you're not sure. Once you move to the next question, your answer is locked, and you cannot return to the question you have already answered.

  • Have scratch paper and a pencil available for your math test. On some questions, a calculator tool will appear at the top of the screen. You can click the calculator picture to option an on-screen calculator that helps you answer the question.

  • Your school principal will let you know the dates and times in August when you can take these tests.

  • Once you are scheduled to test, information will be provided for you to access an online proctor who can help if you have any problems while testing.
