NEW FOR 2015: MAP status and growth norms for schools as well as students!
By using carefully constructed measurement scales that span grades, Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) interim assessments from Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) offer educators efficient and very accurate estimates of student achievement status within a subject. Before achievement test scores can be useful to educators, however, they need to be evaluated within a context.
Discover how the 2015 NWEA RIT Scale Norms allow you to compare achievement status—and changes in achievement status (growth) between test occasions—to students’ performance in the same grade at a comparable stage of the school year. You’ll see how this contextualizing of student performance:
- helps teachers as they plan instruction for individual students or confer with parents
- supports school or district administrators as they focus on allocating resources
- empowers school staff as they work to improve all educational outcomes
