MAP Growth is an interim assessment that reveals a metric that truly matters: how much each student grows over time. It’s trusted by nearly half the schools and districts in the United States, and in over 140 countries around the world, because it delivers timely information that educators trust.



MAP Growth tests begin with a question appropriate for the student’s grade level, then dynamically adapt throughout the test in response to student performance. This progressive refinement allows MAP Growth to challenge top performers without overwhelming students whose skills are below grade level.


MAP Growth measures student performance with our RIT scale—the most stable, mature scale in the industry. Like inches on a ruler, it measures in equal intervals, regardless of a student’s grade or performance—and it remains stable over time.


By using carefully constructed measurement scales that span grade levels, MAP Growth interim assessments from NWEA offer educators precise and accurate estimates of student achievement within a subject. Norms help teachers see if students are growing at an expected pace, regardless of where a student started.


Teachers can see how students perform, as well as how fast they are growing. The class report gives teachers key information for instructional grouping by class, as well as helping them see students who aren’t achieving or growing as quickly as others. 

MAP Skills is a skills mastery and progress monitoring assessment that hones in on the specific skills kids need to learn next. It’s well- suited to support students on the low and high ends of performance—helping teachers personalize instruction for students needing remediation or enrichment.


Quickly and accurately assess your pre-K–5 readers—so you can spend less time testing and more time teaching. With MAP Reading Fluency, you can efficiently measure oral reading fluency with an online, adaptive assessment. In addition to fluency, the benchmark test measures foundational skills and literal comprehension—all with one 20-minute assessment.
