MAP Information October 23, 2013
Agenda What is MAP testing? What is a RIT score? Growth & Projected Proficiency on MAP Student Reports How can MAP scores inform instruction?
What is MAP testing?
o MAP - Measures of Academic Progress o Adaptive test taken on Chrome Books three times a year (fall, winter, spring) o Every third through fifth grade student at LeGette School will take the test this year o MAP scores are called RIT scores o Teachers can use these scores as one piece of assessment to inform instruction and guide student learning MAP Testing
A Performance-based Measure
What is a RIT score?
Achievement scale Equal interval RIT – named after Danish statistician George Rasch Measures longitudinal growth - students academic growth over time RIT score is grade independent Ranges from RIT ® (Rasch Unit) Scale RIT Scale
Growth & Projected Proficiency in MAP
Growth in MAP When students test in the fall, they are in one of the following groups: Projected to Be Proficient by the end of the year Already at the end of the year Proficiency Level Projected to Not be Proficient at the end of the year Based on the students achieving normal growth during the year: Average national growth Based on regular instruction Additional support or intervention should give more than normal growth
Projected Proficiency Projected growth in math: about 8 points Projected growth in reading: about 6 points Based on National Norms using current standards Grade 5 Math Grade 5 Reading 5 Fall< Winter< Spring< National NormsAverage GrowthCollege Readiness 5 Fall< Winter< Spring<

How can MAP scores inform instruction?
Descartes Continuum of Learning DesCartes is an instructional resource that translates student RIT scores to relevant learning continuum statements. The structure matches the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
