This study investigated effort‐moderated (E‐M) scoring, in which item responses classified as rapid guesses are identified and excluded from scoring, and its affect on score distortion from disengaged test taking.
This user’s guide for the MAP Growth Goal Explorer describes how to use this interactive tool, the benchmarks it uses to provide context on student growth goals, a framework for goal setting, instructions for how to download information from the tool, and answers to frequently asked questions.
The MAP Growth Goal Explorer is designed to support and simplify the goal-setting process by showing a range of possible fall-to-spring growth goals against the backdrop of important academic benchmarks.
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.
