MAP Suite Data

With the MAP Suite you get data-driven insights that inform decision making at every level.

Student-level reports give you a complete picture of a student’s learning in one place, making it faster and easier to understand individual strengths and opportunity areas.

Pictured above is the MAP Growth Student Profile Report: the one-stop-shop for MAP Growth data on a single student. Within this report you will find:

  • Assessment data for all subjects a student is tested on (i.e., reading, math, language usage, science)
  • Achievement RIT scores and normed percentiles that let you know how a student is performing
  • Growth percentiles that help you understand if a student is growing faster or slower than similar students
  • Instructional-area scores that indicate which topics (e.g., informational text) within a subject (e.g., reading) students may be strongest in
  • Projected proficiency data for state-summative and college- and career-readiness tests (ACT/SAT)
  • Rapid-guessing data that helps you understand how student disengagement may have impacted a student’s RIT score

The Student Profile Report is invaluable for:

  • Tracking academic growth over time
  • Contextualizing a student’s achievement and growth compared to similar students
  • Identifying instructional areas to conduct additional formative assessment on
  • Understanding which subjects a student might be stronger in
  • Setting growth goals
  • Predicting proficiency on summative and college- and career-readiness tests

Class-level reports let you view assessment data for your whole class at the same time, enabling you to understand the academic diversity of a group of students, identify common strength and opportunity areas, and begin to formulate ideas around instructional strategies that may help the whole class grow academically.

Pictured above is the interactive MAP Growth Class Profile Report: the home page for teachers wanting to learn more about their class. Within this report you will find:

  • Operational information, such as which students have tested, what version of a test each student took, how long each student took to test, and if any of your students were rapid-guessing
  • Achievement RIT scores and normed percentiles that let you know how students are performing
  • Instructional-area scores that indicate which topics (e.g., informational text) within a subject (e.g., reading) students may be strongest in

The Class Profile Report is invaluable for:

  • Understanding the academic diversity of a class
  • Identifying common strength and opportunity areas
  • Monitoring testing status for an entire class
  • Determining which students may need to retest due to rapid-guessing behavior
  • Acting as a source of information that can help inform instructional planning at the term and unit level

School and district reports allow you to view aggregate assessment data across your entire school system and provide you with the insights you need to make program- and district-wide decisions with confidence. You can identify strengths and opportunities, tackle learning barriers, understand where extra resources are needed, and gain a greater understanding of how to help your students succeed.

Pictured above is the interactive MAP Growth School Profile Report, the newest MAP Growth report and the first designed specifically for school leaders. The School Profile Report is a set of refinable data views that provides school and district leaders a richer and more focused experience with their school’s MAP Growth assessment data. Data can be filtered in a wide variety of ways, allowing school leaders to identify subpopulations of students that may need additional help.

Within this report you will find:

  • Achievement percentile breakdowns for each grade within a school and each class within a grade
  • Filters for gender, ethnicity, subject, and class name
  • A count of students in each percentile (via hover over)
  • A list of students in each percentile (by selecting a quintile)

The School Profile Report is invaluable for:

  • Identifying trends and common opportunity areas at the grade and class level
  • Determining the impact of programs and interventions
  • Highlighting areas of a school that need incremental resources in order to maximize growth

Support for your intervention programs

The MAP Suite supports response to intervention (RTI) and multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) programs with tools for screening and progress-monitoring. MAP assessments give you the trustworthy data you need to quickly identify students who could benefit from additional resources and help inform strategies for intervention.

MAP Growth

for universal screening

Trust MAP Growth to accurately identify students in need of academic intervention—so you can move them into a program as early as possible. Getting this crucial data from your interim assessment makes universal screening more efficient and gives you the data you need to support at-risk students.
