The MAP Growth series of exams are intended to measure where a student is relative to where they should be considering their grade level. They are designed by the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) as a measuring tool to make a student's academic growth as easily measurable as their height on a growth chart. If you would like your student to perform better on their next exam, Varsity Tutors can connect you with a MAP test tutor to help them reach their academic potential.
MAP test tutoring sessions are currently available for the following content areas:
- Language Usage (grammar)
These tests have no time limit, but are designed to last approximately 45 minutes per subject. They are also administered on a computer using special adaptive testing technology, meaning that the system selects the next question from a pool based on a student's previous responses. For example, the third-grade math test begins with third-grade mathematics questions but will shift to fourth, fifth, etc. if a student continues to get them right. Likewise, incorrect responses will bring about second or first grade-level questions until a student starts getting some correct. The test ends when a student has answered roughly half of all questions asked correctly, regardless of grade level.
