Support Student Progress Between MAP Growth Assessments
You already rely on data from MAP® Growth™ to support learning for every student. Now you can go even deeper with MAP® Skills™.
MAP Skills is a skills mastery and progress monitoring assessment that helps teachers drill down to the specific skills each student needs to learn. Use it between MAP Growth administrations to see exactly what struggling students are missing and advanced students are ready to take on—then adjust instruction in the moment and monitor student progress.
Discover how adding MAP Skills to your assessment toolbox can make a difference for your students.
Specific Skills Assessment
MAP Skills builds on MAP Growth results by drilling down to pinpoint specific gaps. Because MAP Skills arranges the skills in logical learning progressions, teachers can clearly see what a student needs to learn next.
