NWEA MAP Testing
BSD2 students take NWEA MAP tests in reading and math three times a year: fall, winter and spring.
These are adaptive tests that adjust to the student’s learning level based on the answers the student provided to previous questions. As a student continues to respond to the test, the test automatically adjusts its difficulty level to meet the student where they are at.
The MAP assessments are used to help teachers understand what each student knows so that they can set goals to improve their academic growth throughout the year. The results from these assessments help us know what students are ready to learn.
Your child’s school and/or teacher will send information home to let you know when their classes will take these assessments.
