  • MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: MAP stands for Measures of Academic Progress. These are tests that help us know what skills and concepts in reading, mathematics, language, and science you know and what you need to learn. You will take the tests on the computer. MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: With MAP tests, the questions are displayed on the computer screen. You will select an answer using the mouse or the keyboard. The difficulty of the test will adjust based on how you answer the questions. No two tests will ever be the same. It will build a test just for you!

  • Talking Points: We want to find out exactly where each of you are performing in reading, mathematics, science, and language usage. That will best help us know how to help you and what you should be working on to improve the most. MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: You are not expected to know the answer to every question – use your best test-taking strategies. You must answer every question – you cannot skip any. Once you answer the question and click the button, you cannot go back to a previous question. MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: When you go to the computer lab for the MAP tests, your computer screen will show your name. Wait for directions before clicking the button. One of the adults in the room will let you know when you may start your test. MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: This shows what a math question might look like. You will have scratch paper at your computer if you need to use it to help you solve the problem. Once you have worked the problem, click on the best answer from the list. Then click the button at the bottom of the screen. Remember, you may change your answer as many times as you want, but once you click you cannot go back to this question. MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: This is another sample math question. Notice the calculator at the bottom. It will appear for some questions. You will use it just like a regular calculator, only you click on the buttons with your mouse instead of pressing them with your finger.

  • Talking Points: This is a sample reading question. Notice that the directions are at the top in the light blue stripe. The reading passage is next, then the question you are to answer, and finally all of the answer choices. Once again, you must answer the questions before clicking the button.

  • Talking Points: Some reading questions may have a story or information to read that does not fit entirely on the screen. When you see one of these longer passages, you will also see a scroll bar. You will have to move the scroll bar down as you read so that you can read the entire story. To move the scroll bar, click and drag it downwards with your mouse. Once you have read the entire passage, read the question below it and choose the correct answer. Then click the button to continue. MAP Student Presentation Revised 1/2010 © 2010 Northwest Evaluation Association
  • Talking Points: Remember that with any testing event you should: Get a good night’s sleep Eat a healthy breakfast Take a restroom break before going into the lab During the test: Be sure to follow the directions and read the test questions carefully Use good test-taking strategies (remember, you are not supposed to know all the answers) Do your best After the test: Please raise your hand to let the Proctor or teacher know you are finished. When you are finished, please sit back from your computer and quietly read your book until it is time to leave the lab.
