    The Northwest Evaluation Association’s (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment in both mathematics and reading. This adaptive, computerized assessment is given three times per year in the fall, winter and spring for students in grades K-5, and for both the Ann Arbor Open at Mack and Scarlett-Mitchell K-8 campuses. The purpose of the assessment is to provide data on students' growth over time in the areas of Math and Reading so that teachers can use it to inform instruction.
    There are two versions of the assessment being administered: MAP for Primary and the MAP. MAP for Primary is administered to all K-1 students, while the MAP is administered to students in grades 2-8. Both assessments are computerized and use adaptive technology to create a test unique to each student. K-1 students take 4, 30-minute modules: two in Reading and two in Math. Students in grades 2-8 take 2, 60-minute modules: one in Reading and one in Math.

    The resulting data allows teachers to see the instructional ranges within their classrooms and begin to target their teaching to specific skills students need. This allows for more differentiated instruction within the classroom to meet the needs of all learners.
