Understanding the MAP
The Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) is the comprehensive system that tests students to ensure they are achieving the standards of learning set forth in the Show-Me Standards. These Standards have been developed by the state of Missouri Department of Education so that students are gaining knowledge on par with students nationally and locally. The Assessments provide information on: proficiency levels of students in the subjects they are taking, whether instructional support is required in areas, the teacher’s effectiveness at teaching students to the standards of learning and the school’s progress in raising achievement levels for their students.
Format of the MAP
For students taking the Communications Arts and Mathematics Grade-Level Assessments in grades 3-8, a portion of the assessment uses sections of the TerraNova® survey. This is a norm-referenced test (questions are referenced to national standards) and is used to compare how students are performing to students across the country. The other portions of the Grade Level Assessments are developed in line with the teachings of the Show-Me Standards and measure a student’s proficiency at acquiring grade-level skills and knowledge.
