Fall MAP Testing

Fall MAP Testing iLEAD Exploration

We are excited to announce that the fall MAP testing window is now open. This assessment is conveniently taken in the comfort of your home and is a great way to start off the year. Results are quickly generated and will help target your learner’s specific areas of need. Please contact your educational facilitator for more information.

MAP Testing Window is Open

Map Test image

The MAP (Measured Academic Progress) testing window is now OPEN! Your EF is ready to set up those dates and times that work best for your family’s schedule.

MAP Testing

MAP Testing

The MAP is a beginning and end-of-year assessment that our learners take to discover strengths and areas for continued growth. Your learners can test from their own homes at a time convenient for the family, and the results are available the very next day! Only families and EFs view individual results, and your EF will review the reports with you to celebrate strengths and growth as well as identify areas of focus for the school year.

Several reports are available, including a one-page family report that shows your child’s reading level and how their score compared to other learners across the country. A longer report listing all the skills that your child is ready to develop is also available. The scores can also be plugged into Khan Academy, Newsela, the optional subscription Exact Path, and many other websites to acquire a set of learning activities perfectly customized to your child’s level.

There is a reading and math test, each about 40-60 questions long. You can pause the test at any time, as often as needed. You can also opt for a shorter 20-question test that includes a basic grade level comparison but does not give you a full skills report. Both tests support our standing as a school, and we sincerely appreciate your participation. Please contact your EF to set up a time to begin testing!

MAP Testing

MAP

We would like to thank the hundreds of families who have already participated in our MAP assessment. Our school must collectively demonstrate growth from year to year, and we are asking for your participation to demonstrate our learners’ amazing growth to the state and our authorizers. The MAP Growth test responds to your learner’s individual learning levels by adapting to each question answered correctly or incorrectly until it has honed in on the exact level in the subject and all its sub-categories.
You are able to take the test from home on your own computer at a time convenient for you, and it allows for breaks if you need them. Once you complete the test, you will receive a comprehensive report within 2-3 days of finishing the assessment. Your educational facilitator will be happy to show you how to interpret the results and use the scores to customize your learning experience.
If you are excited to support our school but don’t want the results from the longer test at this time, please talk to your educational facilitator about a shorter test called the MAP screener, which still allows us to present our growth as a school.
Thank you to all our wonderful families for supporting our school in this way! For more information, please watch this video, view this Powerpoint presentation, or visit the MAP website to read the NWEA parent toolkit.

MAP Testing

MAP

We are excited to announce that fall MAP testing is underway. This assessment is free to all our families and provides a detailed report on your learner’s progress in dozens of sub-categories in reading, writing, and math. The test is taken from the comfort of your home at a time convenient for you and your EF. You can explore the test and how to use the results on the NWEA website here.

MAP Testing

iLEAD’s spring session for MAP Growth testing is available now until the end of school year. This past fall, families loved the convenience of being able to test from their own homes, around their own schedule, and receive valuable information to help guide instruction. Spring testing is designed to measure how much your learner has grown throughout the year. If your learner tested in the fall, we highly encourage you to have your learner complete spring MAP Growth testing to measure their progress. Let them show off how much they now know and celebrate their success!

This free and highly regarded tool is one that iLEAD highly encourages you to take advantage of. Even if your learner has not previously participated in MAP Growth testing, we believe the information you will receive will still be of great value. Please let your EF know if you would like to participate in this opportunity.
