The standard error of measure indicates a score's precision. If the SEM is too low or too high, the test will be invalidated on MAP Growth reports.

Tests with an SEM outside of these ranges are considered invalid for reporting and growth. This does not include K-2 tests. For info on K-2 tests, see SEM does not invalidate MAP Growth K-2 tests.

The valid SEM ranges for MAP Growth and Screening tests (2-5, 6+, and 2+ only) are as follows:
  • Growth: 1.0 - 5.5
  • Screening: 1.0 - 7.6
