Introduction
During the course of the year, you may choose to change your definition of "tested" is as it pertains to test restrictions.

Steps
The System Administrator or District Assessment Coordinator for your organization can find your definition of tested by going to Modify Preferences > Modify Tests.

Definitions include:

Test validity:
  • Default: Student has a valid test. Invalid tests (completed tests with too low duration, or with RIT or SEM outside the valid range – see Test has an invalidation code here: Grayed out (low lighted) test results) do not cause the student to be considered tested.
  • Modified: Student has a valid or invalid test.
Test window:
  • Default: Student has a test that is inside the test window. Tests taken before or after the test window do not cause the student to be considered tested.
  • Modified: Student has a test that is inside or outside the test window. Tests taken any time during the term cause the student to be considered tested.
Excluded from reports:
  • Default: Student has a test that is not excluded from reports. Excluded tests do not cause a student to be considered tested, even if the test otherwise meets the criteria. See How to exclude test events from MAP Growth.
  • Modified: Student has a test that is or is not excluded from reports.
Rapid guessing:
  • Default: Student has a test that did not reach the rapid-guessing threshold. Tests where the student rapidly-guessed on over 30% of the questions do not cause the student to be considered tested.
  • Modified: Student has a test that did or did not reach the rapid-guessing threshold.
Terminated:
  • Default: Student has a test that was terminated. If the student has a test that is terminated, they are considered tested.
  • Modified: A student is not considered tested when they have a test that was terminated
To request that NWEA change your definition of tested, the MAP System Administrator or MAP District Assessment Coordinator for your organization can contact NWEA Partner Support, or your Account Manager.
