Top 10 MAP reports for teachers

As school resumes during one of the most unusual and uneven learning periods in recent times, it’s more important than ever to understand what students have learned and what they’re ready to learn next. MAP® Growth™ provides that essential information—and we’re at your side to help you test remotely if you’re ready to do so this fall.

MAP Growth reports give teachers multiple ways to understand what students have learned, how to modify instruction to meet their needs, and plan for what students should learn next. Here are 10 reports that can help you take advantage of assessment data to accomplish four major instructional priorities.

Reports for understanding where students are

1. Student Profile Makes data easy to understand by providing a snapshot of performance compared to national norms and projected proficiency on state summative tests as well as an instructional areas module so you know where to focus instruction for a student.

How to use it: To set and track learning paths and growth goals over the school year.

2. Class Report Shows class performance for a term, including norms status rankings, so you can analyze student needs.

How to use it: To compare classroom performance to national norms, and to determine breadth of instructional needs across a class.

Reports for supporting instruction

3. Achievement Status and Growth Report Helps you determine who needs intervention or enrichment. Shows three pictures of growth, all based on national norms: projections, summary, and quadrant chart.

How to use it: To inform growth goals with students and compare actual growth to goals. To monitor student growth by class.

4. Class Breakdown by RIT Provides a high-level view of student performance by subject in a class.

How to use it: To support instructional decision making.

5. Class Breakdown by Goal Provides a detailed view of student performance by subject in a class.

How to use it: To support instructional decision making.

Reports for understanding what students are ready to learn next

6. Class Breakdown by Projected Proficiency Identifies students for interventions.

How to use it: To predict proficiency on state standards. To predict college readiness as measured against ACT® benchmarks for students in grades 5 and above.

7. Learning Continuum Identifies learning statements corresponding to RIT scores.

How to use it: To plan scaffolding and differentiated instruction.

8. Screening and Skills Checklist Student Report Shows individual student results from certain screening tests or skills checklist tests.

How to use it: To plan scaffolding and differentiated instruction.

9. Student Goal Setting Worksheet Shows a student’s test history and growth projections in selected subject areas for a specific period.

How to use it: To engage students in learning by discussing goals and celebrating achievements.

Report for collaborating with families

10. Family Report Includes definitions to help level set with families, including “achievement,” “growth,” and “RIT.” Provides a snapshot of how an individual student is doing in math, reading, and science compared to a national average.

How to use it: To collaborate with families on student learning—always, but especially during remote learning.
