Our students in grades 2-8 are given the NWEA's MAP Growth Testing three times per academic year. MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) is a standardized test that measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next.
MAP dynamically adjusts to each student’s responses - which means every student gets a unique set of test questions based on responses to previous questions. As a student answers correctly, questions get harder. If a student answers incorrectly, the questions get easier.
MAP Growth tests are given in the Fall, Winter and Spring in the subjects of math, reading, language usage and science . These tests yield a national percentile score as well as a growth scale score (RIT).
Our students regularly perform above both the archdiocesan average and the national norm in every subject and at every grade level.
