We are providing this video and sample report to help parents better understand your child's Student Progress Report and MAP test results.
Your child's report may include more than one chart to reflect different subjects your child is taking.
If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher or school.
NWEA MAP Student Progress Report
- Student RIT: Your child’s RIT score on each test taken.
- District Grade Level Mean RIT: The average RIT score for students in the same school district, same grade level, and same subject that were tested at the same time.
- Norm Grade Level Mean RIT: The average score for students who were in the same grade and tested in the same subject in the same term. It uses information from districts throughout the country.
- Student RIT Projection: A projection of how your child will perform on future tests based on how your child has performed on past tests, as well as how other students in the same grade and subject who were tested in the same term with similar scores have performed.
- Goals Performance: This section shows how your child did in each goal area. You may see a RIT range here or a description adjective. For example, if you see "HiAvg (percentile between 61 and 80)," this means your child is performing better in this goal than 61-80 percent of other students in the same grade.
- Lexile Range: This range appears when your child has taken a reading test and allows you to identify appropriately challenging books, periodicals, and other suitable reading materials.
Results Table Legend
- Term/Year: The test term (FA=fall, SP=spring, WI=winter, SU=summer) and the year when the student took the test.
- Grade: The grade of the student when the test was taken.
- RIT: The middle, bold number is the student's RIT score. The numbers on either side of the bold RIT score define the RIT range. If retested soon, the student's score would fall within this range most of the time.
- RIT Growth: This shows the student's growth in RIT points made between tests in the Growth Comparison Period. For example, if the Growth Comparison Period is fall to fall, this will show the growth between consecutive fall tests.
- Growth Projection: The average growth of students who were in the same grade, tested in the same subject tested in the same initial term, and began with a similar RIT score.
12. Percentile Range: The number in the middle is this student's percentile rank, or the percentage of students in the same grade that had a RIT score less than or equal to this student's score. The numbers on either side of the percentile rank define the percentile range. If retested soon, the student's percentile rank would be within this range most of the time.
