Monthly Platform and Software Maintenance Windows

At NWEA™, we continually seek ways to improve your experience using our products. We perform routine maintenance on our systems to facilitate necessary changes or to release new product features. During these maintenance periods, access to MAP Growth, MAP Skills, CPAA and OECD will be unavailable. We appreciate your patience while we make these critical improvements.

Bookmark this page or subscribe to the RSS Feed to keep apprised of any updates to the schedule. A newsletter is sent prior to releases with details of upcoming changes. Please refer to the “What’s New” page in MAP Growth help for details and user training on changes to MAP (requires MAP login).
