Common Core MAP® and MAP for Primary Grades (MPG)
Important Resources to Support Your Implementation
As states transition to the Common Core, many are asking what impact the new standards will have on their students' performance. NWEA is helping our partners gain that insight today with our MAP and MAP for Primary Grades (MPG) assessments aligned to the Common Core. Built on the same equal-interval measurement scales as our state-aligned tests, these new Common Core-aligned assessments bring continuity to your student data as you make the transition to the Common Core State Standards.
With MAP and MAP for Primary Grades, you can benchmark your students against the Common Core as early as this fall, and gain valuable insight about what they need to achieve under the new standards.
