NWEA approved on the commissioner’s list of seventh-grade reading instruments for use during the 20232024 through 20262027 school years by the Texas Education Agency!

The NWEA MAP® Suite, a combination of MAP Growth™ Reading 6+ and MAP Reading Fluency™ Oral Reading Benchmark, together meet the criteria to assess the required domains of a seventh-grade reading screener.  The MAP Reading Fluency Oral Reading Benchmark screener provides the fluency domain not included in MAP Growth Reading 6+.

If you are assessing all seventh-graders with MAP Growth Reading 6+ as your BOY universal screener, you can then additionally administer the MAP Reading Fluency Oral Reading assessment for just those students who failed to demonstrate reading proficiency in sixth grade.  The student data from both MAP Growth and MAP Reading Fluency will be kept on hand per screening requirements.

Measuring the efficacy of small-group, focused instruction with MAP Growth

When a Texas district used its ESSER funding to deliver high-impact tutoring while measuring impact with MAP Growth assessment data, it helped its seniors raise their average SAT reading and writing scores from 468 to 485—setting them above state norms for the first time in the district’s history.

The reason we love MAP is because it fits seamlessly. It works together with some of our digital platforms to create learning paths. And our teachers have really gotten excited because of the integration. It fills in the gaps.
