Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

District MAP Summary
Spring 2016 to Spring 2017

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a computer adaptive assessment program that measures individual student grade level performance. In 2016-2017 LPS students in grades 6–10 took the reading and math assessment at the end of the year. This table shows aggregated spring performance by grade level for two years. Individual student growth is calculated from one spring assessment to the next. Educators use the formative growth and achievement data throughout the year to develop targeted instructional strategies and to plan school improvement.  MAP test results are reported immediately after completing each test and help educators make student focused, data-informed decisions. 

Beginning 2017-2018, grades 6-8 will replace the MAP assessment with i-Ready and grades 9-10 will continue using MAP to measure student performance and growth.  Please visit our i-Ready webpage for more information.

Grade Level Median RIT - The test score with an equal number of scores above and below; the middle score for the grade level. The RIT scale is an equal-interval scale much like centimeters on a ruler and is used to chart student academic growth from year to year.

Percentile Rank (PR) - Shows the percentage of students in the national sample with scores lower than the typical LPS student.
