Discover common core assessments as unique as your students.
Common Core Measures of Academic Progress® (Common Core MAP®) data provide you with a clear picture of your K – 12 students’ achievement and growth term-to-term and year-over-year. Get insights into every student’s learning needs while gaining valuable information about student progress with common core assessment that measures real growth—even if you experience proficiency drops on your summative assessment.
Common Core MAP gave us a new set of results tied to the Common Core that we hadn’t had in the past. It allowed us to see where our instructional holes were. This was a very reliable way to be able to pinpoint exactly where standards were falling with our kids—and then make the plans necessary to make those gaps go away.
