What is a linking study?

A linking study correlates MAP Growth scores with scores for your state summative assessment. Projected proficiency reports are created using the data from linking studies. This information allows you to predict student performance on the upcoming state assessment from MAP Growth scores, thus identifying students at risk of failing to meet required standards, and allowing you to target instruction and resources to better support every student's academic performance and goals. 
Where can I find my state's linking study?
  1. Go to NWEA.org.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select Solutions > States.
  3. Select your location from the menu and click Go to go to your state information page.
  4. Linking studies are listed towards the bottom of this page, in the Linking Studies section.
