Creating a personal learning journey

We know that children learn better - and faster - when teachers have a clear picture of what each student knows and what they are ready to learn next.
That's why our assessments react to each student's answers. In the testing world, this makes our tests "adaptive" or personalized to measure the needs of every student.
  • If your child answers a question correctly, the test follows up with a more challenging question.
  • If your child answers incorrectly, the test follows up with an easier question.
Adaptive tests make it possible for teachers to pinpoint what each child needs in order to learn best. At NWEA we help teachers understand your student's unique learning needs - because every student matters.

Understanding MAP Growth

What is MAP Growth?
Map Growth is a computer adaptive test created by NWEA that kids take two to three times per school year. The results provide teachers with information to help them deliver appropriate content for each student and determine each student's academic growth over time.
