NWEA MAP

NWEA™ is a global not-for-profit educational services organization with over 30 years experience developing adaptive assessments, professional development, and educational research. Using our mission of Partnering to help all kids learn™ as a guide, we advocate for a kid-centric education policy based on highly accurate, reliable data.


The NWEA assessments are: Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) – These computerized tests are adaptive and offered in Reading, Language Usage, and Mathematics. When taking a MAP® test, the difficulty of each question is based on how well a student answers all the previous questions. As the student answers correctly, questions become more difficult. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions become easier. In an optimal test, a student answers approximately half the items correctly and half incorrectly. The final score is an estimate of the student’s achievement level.
