New eBook – Using MAP Growth Data to Inform Instruction - TLG-IMG-12132018MAP Growth assessments can measure student growth, project proficiency on state accountability tests, and inform how educators differentiate instruction, evaluate programs, and structure curriculum. They can reveal precisely which academic skills and concepts a student has acquired and what they’re ready to learn. They are grade independent and adapt to each student’s instructional level. At the heart of all this is the data the MAP Growth assessment provides.

The learning continuum lets teachers see what students performing at a given RIT level on the MAP Growth assessments are typically ready to learn. Then teachers can use the learning statements within the continuum to drive their instruction. It can also be a great tool to help teachers build an Individualized Education Program (IEP).

Lastly, we’ll share three strategies that teachers use for embracing assessment data. Assessment data and the tools within MAP Growth can be powerful for teachers, but the data must be embraced by the entire teaching team. See how the Beaufort County School District in South Carolina tackled this challenge head on and saw great results.
