No, the practice tests are fixed form, not adaptive. The practice test displays a variety of items that show the wide span of the test. Grades K-2, grades 2-5, and grades 6-12 will see the same items, regardless of grade chosen, that match to their appropriate test form. The purpose of the practice tests is to introduce the test form, function, and types of items, not to prepare students for the content.
Are the practice tests adaptive?
Practice tests are available for the following grades and subjects:
What grades and subjects are available?

Grade 2 students are able to choose between a practice version of the Growth: K-2 test with audio support and the standard Growth test.
With the exception of K-2 tests, all practice tests have the zoom, highlighter and eraser, line reader, and notepad test aids available. Applicable test items may also have the answer eliminator, calculator, ruler, or protractor test aids available. You can enable text-to-speech when setting up the practice test.
Do the practice tests have text-to-speech and test aids? Are they compatible with screen readers?
To use the practice test with a screen reader, select the practice test labeled "accessible".
You can access the Student Resources page from the MAP test session log in page or directly at http://studentresources.nwea.org in a supported web browser. It has videos introducing MAP to students, and for 2+ assessments, it has videos describing how to use the test tool bar. For details, see About the Student Resources page.
