This document correlates MAP® sub-goals and RIT ranges to Khan Academy® exercises. The Khan exercises are interactive problems for students with instant feedback. Feel free to download the document for the appropriate grade range.
Having these exercises correlated to RIT ranges means you can use them in conjunction with your flexible student groupings that are also informed by RIT score results. The exercises are also useful for targeting learning in each student’s zone of proximal development.
The correlation between MAP RIT scores and the Khan Academy exercises was determined by using our 2015 norms data to approximate grade levels, which were then matched to the corresponding Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Teachers in states that have not adopted the CCSS may still find these resources valuable by relating goals or sub-goals that are similar to CCSS goals and sub-goals.
NWEA plans to work with Khan Academy to update these links twice a year as new exercises are developed.
NWEA has also co-developed a new product with Khan Academy called MAP Accelerator. It is an intuitive classroom tool for math teachers of grades 3–8 that automatically translates MAP Growth scores to personalized learning pathways of Khan Academy content—including practice problems, videos, and celebrations of progress. And, the content is aligned to Common Core standards.
