Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) has been working since last year to give schools insight into how Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortia (Smarter Balanced) scores correspond to MAP performance—and how you can use that information to help your students. Here are the latest resources—available now and coming in the next months. This linking data table—from our latest linking study—shows how the cut scores on MAP math and reading assessments correspond to each performance level cut score on the Smarter Balanced test. Use this valuable information to see where your students are now, develop growth goals for the coming year, and create instructional strategies to meet them.
