The 2020 MAP Growth Norms report presents mathematics, reading, language arts and science achievement and growth patterns for students attending public schools across the U.S. It includes details on the methodological approach, information on MAP Growth assessments, the tested student population and post-stratification weighting, growth modeling, and implications of the study for research and practice, as well as tables showing student and school status and growth norms, status percentiles, growth distributions, and growth percentiles
The Achievement Status and Growth (ASG) Calculator is a tool to help you estimate and manage growth goals with your student. The ASG calculator allows you to determine the percentile rank of the test score you received. With your score, it will also help you predict, and evaluate, your performance on future tests.
