MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) Testing

Powered by the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) 


General:

It should be noted that these assessments happen thrice a year, each of the 3 testing windows occuring after the 20th, 100th, and 160th days of school. Please also note that the NAD Data Rollup must be current at least a week and a half prior to each testing window.

ROSTERING - STAFF LOGIN/REPORTS ACCESS:

 

IMPORTANT: The way you put together the roster of your students/teachers/classes/school(s) determines the way your reports look. Data into the roster template equals students’ reports out. Students can be tied to multiple teachers and classes so that each teacher that you want to be able to view MAP results for the students they teach can login and access MAP Growth reports. This may include Interventionists, SpEd, Title, etc. Teachers can/should be tied to their multiple classes of students so they can pull up reports for each of their class periods. The way you organize your roster will allow MAP Growth results to be viewed as you would like to see them.

 

  • Roster Imports via IMPORT PROFILES/ROSTERING:

    • Use the “Start New Import” button to import a completed roster file saved in .CSV format with the first row text exactly matching the original template.

    • Be sure to keep the default selections for roster type (Standard) and “Standard – Add/Update”. (DON’T use the Add/Update Students Only or Add/Update Instructors Only option as these options do not connect your teachers/classes/students.)

    • Student Middle Names must be included. NADs must be used for Instructor IDs and Student IDs

 

  • Give Proctors permission/logins to administer tests. This can be done:

    • In bulk:
      Use the Additional Users tab in the roster file template; populate staff details and  “Yes” in the School Proctor or District Proctor column and import your .CSV file to Import Profiles/Rostering>Additional Users 

      or

    • Ad hoc:
      via MANAGE USERS. You can search for existing users such as Instructors or “Create User” for any new users to the system and select either the School Proctor or District Proctor role. Make sure you get to a confirmation screen

PROCTOR RESOURCES AND MAKE-UP TESTING:

  • The Proctor Quick Start and Proctor Testing Tips documents are useful resources to proctors as they are testing students each day

  • Prior to ending a testing session, proctors have the ability to download session progress which can help aid in make-up session planning

  • In-line and key-word searchable help is available when clicking Help in the upper right-hand corner of the MAP Administration site

  • MANAGE TEST SESSIONS>Find Students to Test>Test History search allows proctors to look for students who haven’t started a test, completed a test, or have reached the rapid-guessing threshold and create make-up sessions



REPORTS AND NORMS RESOURCES:

 

Reports are available via VIEW REPORTS>MAP Growth Reports the next day after a completed test. The MAP Help Center>Your Data section contains many useful resource links:
