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:

Terminated:
  • Checked (default): If the student has a terminated test, they are considered tested.
  • Unchecked: A terminated test does not cause the student to be considered tested.
 
Needs To Be Valid:
  • Checked (default): A student is only considered tested if they have a valid test event. Invalid tests include tests that do not meet the minimum duration, tests that are above or below the maximum or minimum valid RIT or SEM range, or has any other invalidation code. See Grayed out (low lighted) test results for information about invalidation codes.
  • Unchecked: If a student has a completed test event which is either valid or invalid, they are considered tested.
 
Needs to be in Test Window:
  • Checked (default): A test taken before or after the district's test window does not cause a student to be considered tested.
  • Unchecked: If a student tests at any time during a term, that student is considered tested for that term's test window.
 
Needs to be Reportable:
  • Checked (default): A completed or terminated test that the Data Administrator has excluded from reports does not cause the student to be considered tested. See How to exclude test events from MAP Growth.
  • Unchecked: If a student has a completed or terminated they will not be able to retake this test unless the test restrictions is removed.
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.
