MAP: an interim science assessment for grades 3-9

Support STEM efforts with a single science assessment that covers a trio of key fields

There’s an easy way to gain in-depth understanding of your students’ science knowledge: research-based Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) for Science. A single science assessment covers the three key domains: 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

Quick Facts


Maximize each student’s science learning and growth

Empowering Educators

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.

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.
