What options are there to test visually impaired students in Client-Server MAP?

For testing visually impaired students in MAP Growth, see Testing visually impaired students in MAP Growth.

There are two options for testing visually impaired students in Client-Server MAP:
  • Paper-pencil tests (also known as Achievement Level Tests or ALT)
  • Screen magnification software.

For information on using screen magnification software, see: Client-Server MAP: How to use screen magnifiers with TestTaker for students with visual impairments.

Paper-pencil (ALT) testing

Paper-pencil (ALT) testing is available for a one-time license fee for Client-Server MAP users only. Contact your Account Manager if you are interested.

What materials will I receive?

You will receive a set of paper-pencil testing supplies which include master test booklets and a few blank answer sheets. NWEA does not provide test booklets in large print or braille format. Your organization is responsible for creating these from the masters provided in the initial set of supplies.

How do I request ALT tests for students?

You must identify students needing paper-pencil tests in the Class Roster File (CRF) by including paper-pencil subjects in the Class Subject Name field. We cannot print or score PP tests if this information is not included in the CRF.

Which tests are available?

Tests available in paper-pencil are:
  • Reading
  • Language
  • Mathematics

End of course mathematics and science tests are not available.
