4MAP Testing MAP - Measures of Academic Progress Adaptive test taken on Chrome Books three times a year (fall, winter, spring)Every third through fifth grade student at LeGette School will take the test this yearMAP scores are called RIT scoresTeachers can use these scores as one piece of assessment to inform instruction and guide student learningDeanna

Our scale is based on the same modern test theory that aligns student achievement levels with item difficulties on the same scale.The scale is divided into equal parts (an equal interval scale), like centimeters on a ruler. NWEA calls these parts RITs, which is short for Rasch unIT (after the test theory's founder, Danish statistician, Georg Rasch). Each subject area has its own unique RIT scale. NWEA uses the RIT scales to measure a student’s academic growth over time. Like using a ruler to measure a child's growth in height, we use the RIT scale to measure a student’s academic growth over time.”
9Growth in MAPWhen students test in the fall, they are in one of the following groups:Projected to Be Proficient by the end of the yearAlready at the end of the year Proficiency LevelProjected to Not be Proficient at the end of the yearBased on the students achieving normal growth during the year:Average national growthBased on regular instructionAdditional support or intervention should give more than normal growthDeanna
