Support STEM efforts with a single assessment that covers a trio of science goodness
There’s a way to gain in-depth understanding of your students’ science knowledge: research-based Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) for Science. A single test covers the three key domains of science: life sciences, earth and space sciences, and physical sciences. Use the precise, real-time results to personalize instruction throughout the year for every student—including special needs students and those performing at, above, and below grade level.
|ASSESSMENT TYPE||Computer adaptive interim assessment|
|GRADE RANGE||3 – 9|
|STRUCTURE||Cross-grade iProviding measurement of students who perform on, above, and below grade level|
|RECOMMENDED USE||3-4 / year (with fall, winter, spring, and summer intervals)|
|TEST TIME||Untimed, but typical student completes in under 60 minutes / subject area|
|PAIRINGS||Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)|
Take the next step
Maximize each student’s science learning and growth
Uncover what every student needs to move forward academically
Inform instruction using valid, reliable—and real-time—data
Measure every student’s growth over time
Engage students and families in goal-setting
Create and reinforce evidence-informed instructional practices
Evaluate programs and identify professional development needs
Use exclusive norms and growth information to compare student achievement and growth over time
With MAP, it’s easier to prepare students for state science mandates. We’ve aligned MAP for Science to state standards, and to two national standards: The American Association for the Advancement of Science Benchmarks for Science Literacy and The National Research Council’s National Science Education Standards.
How will you use MAP for Science data?
MAP for Science computer adaptive interim assessments provide educators with immediate information about each student’s science knowledge in three core areas. Using MAP for Science data, educators inside and outside the classroom can adjust instruction, curriculum, and resources to help every student grow academically.
Personalize science-related instruction in order to maximize every student’s academic growth
Track science-related learning progress of individual students and classrooms and to help evaluate the success of your science programs
Understand the science-related learning progress of every student, classroom, and school in your district
MAP Beyond Science
Don’t miss out: there’s more to MAP than science!
MAP K – 12 computer adaptive interim assessments cover reading, language usage, and mathematics. MAP delivers key insights into all your students’ instructional needs, including high- and low-performing students, special needs students, and K – 2 early learners. You’ll also receive growth and norms data that permit you to evaluate student achievement independent of grade, over time, and in relation to students across the U.S.
