Growth Insights

This topic covers common questions about MAP growth data.

Overview of MAP Growth Data

By using MAP tests, your schools can gain insight into the growth of all students, both low and high achievers. What makes it possible is the NWEA MAP Norms study, which is representative of schools across the nation. NWEA norms enable you to compare student achievement in a single term (a "status norm"), as well as across terms (a "growth norm"):

Use growth norms to:

  1. project the amount of growth that is typical for similar students
  2. set appropriate growth targets, based on the projection
  3. evaluate the observed growth in a subsequent term
