MAP Testing
    • MAP® Growth™ Overview
      Lubbock ISD administers the Measures of Academic Progress Growth, or MAP® Growth™, Reading and Math achievement tests to students in Kindergarten thru 8th grade three times a year (beginning, middle, and end of year).  MAP® Growth™ is a nationally normed, standardized achievement test which measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next by dynamically adjusting to each student’s performance.  MAP® Growth™ creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance—whether a student performs on, above, or below grade level. 



      MAP RIT Scale 

      Every question on a MAP® Growth™ assessment is calibrated to the RIT, or Rasch Unit, scale. Because the equal-interval scale is continuous across grades, educators can trust it to track longitudinal growth over a student’s entire career.  A RIT score has the same meaning regardless of grade level or age of the student.  Scores over time can be compared to tell how much growth a student has made.

      MAP® Growth™ assessments use the RIT scale to create a grade-independent RIT score, which indicates the level of question difficulty a given student is capable of answering correctly about 50% of the time.  RIT scores help educators understand what every child is ready to learn.
