MAP Growth Testing

Middle of the Year MAP Testing

The middle-of-year MAP testing window is upon us. The district requires the MAP Growth Screener for all students in 3rd and 4th grade, which will be used to help guide your child’s instruction in math, reading and science. The MAP assessments show what individual students already know and what they are ready to learn in the assessed areas, as well as identify student growth as we progress through the year.


What: Middle-of-Year MAP Testing for Math, Reading, and Science. 

When: Students will test during class time on the following days:

Tuesday, January 18 (Reading)

Wednesday, January 19 (Math)

Monday, January 24 (Science)


Materials Needed: Students will need their school-issued device, headphones, paper, and pencil.


Facts about MAP Growth Test:

  • It is a computer-based test.

  • Questions can be multiple choice, drag-and-drop, fill in the blank, etc.

  • Each test has about 50 questions.

  • Students usually take around 60 minutes to complete the test.

  • Students will not know the answers to some of the questions. This is expected, as this test is constructed in a way that students should not know every answer. The purpose of the test is to see what they know and what they are ready to learn.


By working together, we can make sure your child’s test experience is positive and successful. Here are some suggestions that parents can do to help children succeed. Students should:

  • Get plenty of sleep the night before the test.

  • Eat a healthy breakfast at home or at school.

  • Come to school on time with the tools that are needed. (i.e. school-issued device, headphones, paper and pencil, etc).
