NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Test

Fall NWEA - All students in grades 6-8 take the MAP test. The fall test give us a benchmark score that we use to measure growth during a period of time. The fall tests will be given from September 10 to September 21, 2018.

Winter NWEA – We will not be administering the test schoolwide. However, some teachers are administering the tests to their class. Students that have entered John Adams since the end of the fall testing period or didn't receive a score in the fall will be taking both NWEA tests in order to give us a baseline. 

Spring NWEA – All students in grades 6-8 take the MAP test. The score on these reading and math tests are measured against the fall score to show the amount of growth made by a student. The spring MAP tests will be taken from May 6 to May 17, 2019.
