Test events are low-lighted or grayed out in reports. The most common causes for this issue are described in this article.


The student has taken more than one test in the subject

If there is more than one test event which meets the criteria for growth test event, then the test event with the lowest standard error of measure, rounded to one decimal place, will be the valid test event. The other will be greyed out. If the tests have equivalent standard errors, see How does MAP choose which test to include on reports when a student retests?

If you wish to change which test is the valid test for growth purposes, you can suppress the unwanted test from reports. There is no way to completely delete a test from the MAP Growth system. To suppress the test, see Fix Test Events in MAP Growth Help

Student tested outside of the testing window

  1. Have a System Administrator check the test window dates in the Modify Preferences > Manage Terms section.
  2. Check the test window dates (not the term window dates) to ensure the test falls within them.
  3. Test window dates can also be managed on a school by school basic under Modify Preferences > Modify DistrictSelect School > View/Update Terms.
