Make an immediate difference in student learning with real-time data
In any given classroom, students learn and grow at different rates. To help you tailor your teaching to meet the needs of all students, we’ve designed our computer adaptive, research-based pre-K – 12 assessments to be used throughout the school year. Because NWEA assessments deliver precise results that identify learning levels, you can use your data to differentiate instruction and support every student’s learning journey.
Measures of Academic Progress, MAP, has been very powerful in the classroom. One of its strongest points is the ability to inform instruction. I don’t know of another instrument that is as detailed in providing relevant information for teachers moving forward as MAP has been for us.
|MEASURES OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS® (MAP®) FOR PRIMARY GRADES||K – 2 students|
|MAP||Grade 2 – 12 students|
|SKILLS NAVIGATOR®||Grade K – 8 students|
|MAP FOR SCIENCE||Grade 3 – 10 students|
|CHILDREN’S PROGRESS ACADEMIC ASSESSMENT™(CPAA™) SKILLS ASSESSMENT||Pre-K – 3 student (English); Pre-K – 2 students (Spanish)|

How We Help Teachers
Our assessments do what teachers need them to do
Provide data teachers can use to personalize instruction quickly via 1:1, small group, or whole group activities
Support efforts to engage students in their learning goals and progress
Supply easy-to-understand information about every student’s academic successes and opportunities
Focus families’ at-home activities on their child’s unique learning strengths and challenges
All of the CPAA data is immediate. We use the reports both to generate the dynamic groups and to choose an appropriate concept-specific activity. Teachers also use the reports to collaborate with parents. CPAA helps our students stretch to see how far they can go and it helps us identify exactly how to help them get there.
Data Accelerated Learning
Discover how data-informed instruction makes it easier to accelerate learning
Build instructional plans for individual students, skill-based groups, and entire classrooms
Monitor school and student performance and work with instructional teams to help maximize every student’s potential—as well as his or her performance on high-stakes tests
Provide teachers and Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) with clear, specific instructional next steps
Make an impact by using data that ranges from individual students to an entire district to track student progress, inform programming, and identify resource gaps
Skills Navigator™ is a classroom assessment system that helps teachers close achievement gaps, use data to guide instruction, and support students with diverse needs. It quickly identifies skills students are ready to learn and tracks progress toward mastery, while also linking to differentiated instructional resources for grades K – 8. Skills Navigator is also designed for use with Tier II Response to Intervention progress monitoring.
Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and MAP for Primary Grades (MPG) interim assessments now include our proprietary interactive tool for teachers, the Learning Continuum.
Teachers using the Learning Continuum can see what students performing at a given RIT level on MAP assessments are typically ready to learn. From there, they can use the learning statements within the continuum to help them differentiate instruction for both individual students and skill-based activity groups.
Clear: Easy-to-understand learning statements provide an instructional starting point for teachers by describing the skills and concepts that need to be introduced, developed, or reinforced
Flexible: Multiple report views meet different needs
Actionable: RIT scores get connected to skills and concepts students are ready to learn, helping teachers identify and communicate learning goals and targets to students
Children’s Progress Academic Assessments (CPAA) skills assessment provides educators with skill-specific activities at three levels, from challenging (for enrichment) to supportive (for remediation). Report information allows educators to find trouble areas, group students, prepare lesson plans, and more. To help welcome families into their child’s learning process, CPAA also includes English or Spanish language performance summaries and at-home activities.
Instructional resources for MAP
Instructional resources transform MAP data into targeted, hands-on learning
Instructional resources help teachers translate the powerful data they get from MAP assessments into tailored teaching opportunities for each student. These online tools make it easy to:
- personalize instruction for each student, whether he or she is performing on, above, or below grade level
- identify Open Educational Resources (OERs) that align to student learning needs
- share resources with students for classroom work or at-home learning
Get more from MAP: Explore NWEA-approved instructional content providers
Give your teachers a quick, efficient way to differentiate instruction: connect with our authorized instructional content providers (ICPs). Our ICPs match students’ Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment results to content and instructional materials tailored to each student’s unique zone of proximal development (ZPD). These MAP-informed learning paths help maximize each student’s learning and growth—while also maximizing your district’s investments.
- Engage students with content that supports their learning goals and ability to work independently
- Automate the process of selecting content for differentiating instruction
- Provide teachers and students access to content in the classroom, in intervention settings, or at home
