MAP is short for Measures of Academic Progress, a computer-based assessment put together by the not-for-profit organization Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA). MAP is aligned to the more rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS) adopted by the State of Illinois, and the results help us measure the academic growth of our students, as well as help identify areas where we can provide additional supports for individuals.

In Cook County School District 130, we give the MAP test three times during the year. An individual student will only take two MAP tests during each testing window – one for Reading and one for Mathematics. These two tests will occur on two separate days. Principals and teachers determine the exact dates individual students take these assessments, and they can share that information at the beginning of each testing window.

The MAP test is an adaptive assessment, meaning it is individualized to each student. If a student answers questions correctly, the
test becomes more difficult. If a student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier. The test adjusts to the current
achievement level of the individual, allowing a fair opportunity to show what a student can or cannot do. There is no time limit, but
the average student finishes each assessment in forty minutes or less.
