The NWEA, (Northwest Evaluation Association), Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment is a computerized test that is adaptive and offered in Reading, Language Usage, and Mathematics.  When taking a MAP test, the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all of the previous questions.  As the student answers correctly, questions become more difficult.  If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier.  The final score is an estimate of the student’s achievement level.  To learn what the results mean view the reference chart.

Fountas and Pinnell

Using the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Systems to determine a student’s independent and instructional reading levels, teachers are able to observe student reading behaviors one-on-one, engage in comprehension conversations that go beyond retelling, and make informed decisions that connect assessment to instruction.
