Computer-Based Adaptive Assessments

Rich Data on Student Learning—As It Happens

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Each child learns differently. So we developed computerized adaptive assessments that test differently, allowing teachers to see their students as individuals – each with their own base of knowledge. With flexible delivery options, our assessments can scale to fit your needs.

Tests That Adapt to the Student

NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) tests present students with engaging, age-appropriate content. As a student responds to questions, the test responds to the student, adjusting up or down in difficulty.

The result is a rewarding experience for the student, and a wealth of detailed information for teachers, parents and administrators.

Powered By Data

The  underlying data driving the assessment ensures remarkable accuracy, based on over 24 million assessments given over our 30+ years. Our equal-interval RIT scale increases the stability, providing grade-independent analysis of a child's learning. 

For educators, it means at last having timely information that, used well, can change the course of a student's schoolyear — and life.
