Carol Jessen and JaLena Slack ESU 8 MEASURES OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS™ (MAP) OVERVIEW
What is MAP??? MAP is… Designed to provide us with… an instructional level of our students a road map for students toward achieving mastery information to help inform instructional decisions immediate data and dynamic, interactive reports
What is MAP??? MAP is… Measures of Academic Progress Adaptive Challenging, appropriate, and dynamic Designed to measure student growth over time Designed to be delivered more than once per year Aligned with Nebraska’s State Standards

7 Features of MAP™ Assessments Challenging and appropriate Dynamically developed Accurate data Untimed Measures growth Immediate results Usually test 3 times a year
8 How do I know which test to give? Survey w/ Goals 42-64 items ~ 1 hour to administer Gives information on goal areas Survey 20 items ~ 30 minutes to administer No information on goal areas Overall RIT only
ProctorsTeachers Before Testing Ready all computers for testing MAKE SURE CORRECT TESTS ARE ASSIGNED Number class lists to computers, share with teachers Have scratch paper and pencils available Let students know computer assignments Show MAP Student PowerPoint ® Presentation to students Have students bring a book to read or assignment to work on Bring class to computer lab at designated time – help find computers During Testing Read directions to students Monitor test event Terminate tests as needed Log scores or print screen at end of test Remain in lab to help monitor test event After Testing Prepare computer for next group to test between testing sessions Upload data to NWEA at end of every day during testing if designated by the district to do so Access teacher reports 24-48 hours after data is uploaded Analyze class and teacher reports Discuss student scores with parents and students Implement necessary instructional modifications 9
Proctor Training http://www.nwea.org/support/course/map-proctor-training Duration: ½ hour long Delivery: Recorded Online Training (Self-paced, facilitator-led recorded session) Registration is required (record keeping purpose only) Any number of viewers at same time
How Can MAP Data Be Used? Finding gaps Monitoring progress Monitoring programs Conferencing Informed instructional decisions
27 MAP Reports Purpose of reports Provide data to inform instruction and decision making Critical reports for today Teacher Report Class Rosters Online Individual Student Progress Report Instructional Resources Class by RIT Reports
What is a Lexile score? Lexile is an equal interval scale to identify difficulty of text When assigned to a student’s RIT score, it indicates the level of books a student can read with 75% comprehension. Lexile is always 150 Lexile range: Bottom 100 Lexile of score is independent reading range, and top 50 Lexile of score is the gifted or instructional range (challenge material).
33 Activity with the Teacher Report Investigate a Class 1.What subject, grade, and season is this report? 2.Which student has the highest RIT score? 3.Which student has the lowest RIT score? 4.Which student has the median RIT score? 5.Which goal area has the highest mean?
34 Making the Grade-Level Connection 1.Highest RIT score = what grade level? 2.Lowest RIT score = what grade level? 3.Median RIT score = what grade level? 4.Which students are three points or more from the grade level median?
Instructional Resources: Class by RIT Access: NWEA Reports Site Displays: Groups with similar scores Provides: Skills/concepts at instructional level Designed: To support instructional planning Class Breakdown by Overall RIT Score and Class Breakdown by Goal
Accessing Instructional Resources: Class by RIT Reports Class Breakdown by Goal for Reading Class Breakdown by Goal for Reading
38 DesCartes: A Continuum of Learning Access: NWEA Reports Site Displays: Three columns Skills and Concepts to Enhance Skills and Concepts to Develop Skills and Concepts to Introduce Provides: Skills/concepts aligned to student’s instructional level Designed: To support instruction and to help inform decision-making
39 Accessing DesCartes or Primary Grades Instructional Data
40 Activity with Instructional Resources How might you use these reports? As an individual teacher As a grade-level team Across grade levels
