Measure student progress with MAP

MAP delivers data when it matters most: when there’s still time to make a difference in student progress

Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level—precisely measuring student progress and growth for each individual. You’ll have essential information about what each student knows and is ready to learn within 24 hours.

It used to be that we talked about differentiation but we didn’t really provide a lot of time or resources or focus for that. MAP has given us a way to focus. Now teachers have a plan for how they use time for either intervening with students that need it, or providing enrichment to challenge those higher-level students.

Empowering Educators

How will you use MAP data?

Based on over 30 years of solid research, our computer adaptive interim assessments do more than create personalized test experiences for every student: they provide the most stable scale and data in the assessment industry. Educators around the globe trust MAP and our interactive MAP Learning Continuum to deliver instructional insights that help them accelerate student learning.


Assessment that’s accessible for all

We build accessible testing experiences that allow all students to demonstrate their knowledge, ability, and growth—and we provide appropriate accommodations to make that possible for every individual. With Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as the underpinning of our approach, we’ve included test aids and item aids that remove barriers to student engagement and allow for individualization based on student needs. And we continually improve on these features through partnerships with accessibility leaders like the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) and the Center for Applied Specialized Technology (CAST).
