|Description||Shows class performance for a term, including norms status rankings, so you can analyze student needs|
|Applicable Tests||MAP Growth, Screening, and MAP Growth K–2|
Instructor, Administrator, or Assessment Coordinator (School or District)
|1 year prior, including tests completed outside your test window range (they appear in gray font)|
|Mean RIT Score,
Median RIT †
|Average and middle RIT scores of students in this class for this subject.|
|Standard Deviation †||Indicates academic diversity of a group of students. The lower the number, the more students are alike (zero would mean all scores are the same). The higher the number, the greater the diversity in this group.|
|District Grade-Level Mean RIT||
Average RIT score of students in this grade for this district. An asterisk (*) appears if the testing window for the term is not closed.
|Students At or Above District Grade-Level Mean RIT †||The number of students reported who scored at or above the district grade level mean RIT. An asterisk (*) appears if the testing window for the term is not closed.|
|Grade-Level Mean RIT
||These figures give you a national comparison to students who were in the same grade and who tested in the same test window as observed in the NWEA norms study. An asterisk (*) appears if no norms data are available for this subject in this grade (most often 11th grade science and 12th grade).|
|Students At or Above Grade-Level Mean RIT|
|Overall Performance||The top row breaks out the overall scores into the different percentile rankings (low to high), based on the NWEA norms study.|
|Instructional Area RIT Range||
These rows show percentile rankings for each instructional area (“goal”) within the test subject. Data appear only if a student took a MAP Growth test, not Screening.
Note: Instructional area categories may be labeled differently depending on your test version or state assessment.
|Mean RIT Score +/- Smp Err||
The middle number is the mean RIT score for this grade. The numbers on either side indicate the standard error of measure.
Tip—Compare performance in each goal strand with the overall scores in the top section. Your group could be doing well overall, but low in certain areas.
|Std Dev (Standard Deviation||Indicates academic diversity of a group of students. The lower the number, the more students are alike (zero would mean all scores are the same). The higher the number, the greater the diversity in this group.|
|† If summary data is missing: By default, these statistics do not compute if you have fewer than ten valid growth test events because a small group is statistically unreliable. However, you can choose the Small Group Display option to compute these figures regardless of group size.|
|RIT Score||Percentile||Lexile® Range||Test Duration|
|The middle number in bolded text is the student's overall RIT score. The numbers on either side of the RIT score define the RIT range.||The middle number in bolded text is the student's percentile rank, or the percentage of students who had a RIT score less than or equal to this student's score as observed in the NWEA norms study.||
This range appears when the student has taken a reading test. You can use it with online resources to identify appropriately challenging books, periodicals, and other reading material for each student.

|Total of the minutes a student took to complete all test questions (excludes any test interruptions). For a comparison of typical test times, see Average Test Durations.|
(+/- Std Err)
The numbers on either side define the standard error range. If retested, the student's score would fall within this range about 68% of the time.
Gray text: Indicates tests that are valid but do not provide growth data (such as a test taken outside the test window). These test results are excluded from summary statistics.
Summarizes each student's performance in the instructional areas (“goals”). Data appears only if a student took a MAP Growth test. Screening tests do not provide instructional area data. Note: Instructional area categories may be labeled differently depending on your test version or state assessment.
Italic scores = Performance that might be an area of concern, because they are more than 3 RIT points below the overall RIT score.
Bold scores = Performance that might be an area of relative strength, because they are more than 3 RIT points above the overall RIT score.
Plain scores = RIT range within 3 RIT points of the overall RIT score.
Scores can appear either as RIT ranges or descriptors. Descriptors are based on NWEA norms: Low = 20th percentile or lower. LoAvg = 20th to 40th percentile. Avg = 40th to 60th percentiles. HiAvg = 60th to 80th percentiles. High = 80th percentile or higher.
If an asterisk (* or *‑*) appears: The goal performance cannot be calculated. The student may have answered too many items incorrectly or too few items may have been available in the RIT range assessed.
The following options help to format the Class report data:
Term Rostered: Term when students were enrolled (“rostered”) into MAP. Typically, you can leave it set to the current term (choices are limited to the current and previous academic years).
Term Tested: Term with the test events you want to see. For example, in the fall you might want to see results from the previous spring. Choices are limited to terms that are concurrent with or that precede the Term Rostered.
School, Instructor, Class, and Subject: The choices you have depend on your MAP role. The Assessment Coordinator can choose from across the district. Other roles are limited to assigned schools and classes.
Optional Grouping: Includes additional summary data by gender or ethnicity in addition to grouping by subject. If optional grouping is not selected, the summary data is grouped by test and subject. The default option is None.
Student Detail Display: Shows detail information if selected. All reports have an overall summary page.
Sort Order: Specifies the order of report results for the selected class by:
- Student Name sorts students in alphabetical order.
- Test RIT sorts by student RIT score in ascending numeric order.
Instructional Area Performance Display: Includes any individual goal RIT performance data for both growth test events and other valid test events in the report. The number of goals and their names is based on the specific test event. Clear this option to exclude the goal scores from the report.
Instructional Area Range: Displays the goal scores as a descriptor or range:
- Instructional Area Descriptor shows how this score aligns with NWEA norms percentiles, such as Low or High.
- Instructional Area RIT Ranges displays a range that accounts for standard error, such as 153-169.
Small Group Display:Overrides the report summary default and reports summary data for groups of fewer than ten students with growth test scores. Because summary data for small groups is not statistically reliable, it is typically not included in reports.
