What is MAP?  Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computerized adaptive assessment program that provides Saint Bridget School educators with the information they need to improve teaching and learning and make student-focused, data-driven decisions.  Students in grades Kindergarten through grade 8 are tested three times per year in math, reading and language usage.  Educators use the growth and achievement data from MAP to develop targeted instructional strategies and to plan school improvement.  Quick Facts about MAP:

1.  Is not an accountability test

2.  Generates Test questions based on student responses

3.  Reports student results in RIT scores (RIT information sheet will be available shortly)

4.  Results delivered in a more timely and useful format

5.  Measures growth over time

6.  Provides information used to target individual instruction
