Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level. You’ll have assessment data—and essential information about what each student knows and is ready to learn—within 24 hours.
Discover classroom assessment that makes a real difference for teachers and students. Designed for grades K – 8, Skills Navigator™ helps close achievement gaps, use data to guide instruction, and support kids with diverse needs—on, above, or below grade level.
Prekindergarten and early primary students aren’t just small versions of bigger kids. That’s why Children’s Progress Academic Assessment™ (CPAA™) provides a personalized assessment experience that supports your youngest learners’ unique developmental needs.
