ENROLLING FOR A TEST TERM

Creating an error-free Class Roster File (CRF) and Special Programs File (SPF) is one of the most important steps in preparing to administer Measures of Academic Progress (MAP).

In addition, they will learn tips to help ensure a timely enrollment process. Documentation is provided for download within the presentation.
