Skills Locators can identify 1-5 Needs Work skills in a single strand. When you assign a Skills Locator to a student, you will choose the strand and the number of Needs Work skills you wish to identify.

The Skills Locator for mathematics and language adapts to find the lowest skills a student may need to work on. Once a student misses a sufficient number of items for a particular skill, that skill is marked as Needs Work. The Skills Locator continues assessing skills until the requested number of Needs Work skills have been identified.

For more information on how Skills Locators work, see the Test Details section of Assign Missions in the MAP Help Center. For information on assigning a Skills Locator, see Using the Skills Locator.
