NACS administers NWEA's MAP (Measure of Academic Progress)
Growth testing several times a year:
to baseline students at the beginning of the year,
to check students progress throughout the year, and
to make instructional adjustments on an individual student basis.
Our MAP scores compare a student’s test results against their peers, their FL Conference aggregate peers and national grade norms.
Here are highlights from our MAP Growth Report that measures knowledge growth from Fall 2020 to Fall 2021.
