Introduction
Should a second grade student or a high performing first grade student take the MAP Growth K-2 test or the 2-5 test?

Information
A summary of our recommendations for which test students should take is below:
  • Grade K: MAP Growth K-2
  • Grade 1: MAP Growth K-2
  • Grade 2: MAP Growth 2-5, with some exceptions:
    • Reading: If a student has already taken MAP Growth 2–5 and scored 170 RIT or lower, the MAP Growth K–2 assessment is more appropriate. If a student has already taken MAP Growth K–2 Reading and has scored 190 RIT or higher, they are ready to take the MAP Growth 2–5 assessment. 
    • Math: If a student has already taken MAP Growth 2–5 and scored 170 RIT or lower, the MAP Growth K–2 assessment is more appropriate. If a student has already taken MAP Growth K–2 Mathematics and has scored 200 RIT or higher, they are ready to take the MAP Growth 2–5 Mathematics assessment.
  • Grades 3-5: MAP Growth 2-5

You can adjust these recommendations for students with IEPs, 504s, or other special needs such as ELL. State or district policy may supersede the above recommendations.

For detailed recommendations on transitioning students between tests, and additional considerations for students who are learning to read, see 2019 MAP Growth grade-level test guidance (K-2 to 2-5) in the MAP Help Center.
