MAP Scores

Explanation of the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) score

What is MAP? 

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computerized adaptive assessment program that provides educators with the information they need to improve teaching and learning and make student-focused, data-driven decisions.

Student MAP testing results are reported in RIT scores (short for Rasch Unit). A RIT score is an estimation of a student's instructional level and also measures student progress or growth in school. The tables below show the typical grade level scores based on national data of students who take this test across the country.

What is a Percentile Score?

Percentile scores for individual test takers represent how an individual test taker's score compares to the scores of other test takers. Percentile scores range from the 1st through 99th percentile, indicating the percentage of scores which are lower than the test taker's score.

For example, if your score report says that your score is in the 67th percentile, this means that you have tested better than 66% of the students who took the MAP test nationally.
