What is MAP Growth?
A test that adapts to your child's responses in real time to measure your child's skill level.
Why is my child taking MAP Growth?
MAP Growth measures what students know and what they don't know, regardless of their grade level. This helps teachers adjust their instruction for each student. It also measures growth over time, allowing you to track your student's progress throughout the school year and across multiple years.
What is a RIT Score?
The overall score for a subject based on a Rasch unit (RIT) scale that indicates how your child performed in a subject.
What do Achievement and Growth mean?
Achievement: How well your child has learned skills in a subject compared to similar students nationwide.*
Growth: A measure of your child's personal progress over the year.
*Similar students - kids with same starting RIT score, same number of weeks of instruction, and in same grade.
