Your organization is able to specify the number of instructional weeks before each testing term. You can specify this by district, or by each individual school.

To get the most accurate growth and percentile data, you can configure the number of instructional weeks before each testing term in the MAP Suite. Each term can be modified as follows:
  • Fall: Between 2 and 8 weeks
  • Winter: Between 16 and 24 weeks
  • Spring: Between 28 and 36 weeks

For instructions on configuring these dates in your MAP Suite, see: Date Setup Before Testing. If your organization tests outside of the available weeks, choose the closest week. Changes made to instructional weeks take immediate effect on reports.

Can we set different instructional weeks for schools that test at different times?

Yes. You can adjust these weeks at the school level or the district level, just as you can adjust testing windows. See Set School-Specific Test Dates section in the MAP Help Center.

When can I update instructional weeks? Can I update instructional weeks for previous academic years?

You can update the instructional weeks at any time, for any term, even if the test window is complete.
