Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Growth

MAP Growth is a comprehensive assessment that focuses on tracking the growth of students in grades K-12 through the school year. Though the test is untimed, each subject takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The computer adaptive assessment is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. MAP GROWTH is part of the MAP Suite, which also contains MAP Skills.
