MAP TESTING (NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® MAP® Growth™)

 

MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child's academic growth. This assessment is used in over 3,500 schools worldwide. There are 8 schools in Kuwait who are currently using MAP Assessments to monitor their student’s progress.

The purpose of this test is to better understand the set of skills and concepts that each student already has and needs to develop in the subjects tested. The result provides the school with timely information to better understand where the students lie in their learning journey and inform instruction accordingly. The school wide results are also analyzed each year and are used to also help the school evaluate programs and identify professional development needs.

Students enrolled at DUSK in grades 1 - 12 are assessed three times per year with the MAP Assessment. Students are assessed in Math, Reading, and Language Usage. MAP assessments are important to teachers because they keep track of student academic progress and growth in specific skills. They let teachers know where a student’s strengths are and if help is needed in any specific areas. Teachers use this information to help them guide instruction in the classroom. Danah universal School of Kuwait strives to exceed the national standard in grade level assessments. We will work collaboratively with parents to help students reach their highest level of academic achievement.
