Here are common ways you can use MAP Growth results to plan and adjust your instruction.
Also, as you introduce students to concepts associated with RIT ranges, see Match RIT to Concepts.
Group Students and Tailor Lessons
You can tailor your lessons to students in lower and higher RIT bands in order to keep their growth on track. What makes it possible are the MAP Growth learning statements. The learning statements translate MAP scores to concepts that follow a continuum of learning.
For example, using the Learning Continuum online report, you can see statements describing what students need to catch up, as well statements for students who are ready for more challenge:
Note: You can still differentiate instruction even when a learning statement appears across several RIT bands. Statements covering a broad range of RIT bands indicate a skill or concept with progressive levels of complexity, such as multiplying single digits vs. multiple digits.
Choose Classroom Materials
Together with state and local standards, you can use MAP Growth results to choose the resources and materials you provide students. If available for your test, you can filter the MAP Growth learning statements by your grade-level state standards. For the Learning Continuum, see Controlling the View and for Student Profile, see Standards view.
MAP Growth also aligns with numerous instructional resources:
NWEA provides a guide to locate Khan Academy activities aligned to RIT scores:
Your Content Providers
You can export or share MAP Growth results for use in your separate instructional content tool. For an overview, see www.nwea.org/instructional-connections. For instructions, see Data Exports and Sharing.
Develop Personalized Learning Goals
To help students get involved with their learning, use MAP Growth tools for setting academic goals:
