The strand "Informational Texts (General)" under the reading instructional area "Informational Text" only contains skills for grade levels 1 and 2.

The informational texts (general) strand only contains skills at the grade levels 1 and 2 by design. The five reading strands in MAP Skills are Creative Fiction, Realistic Fiction, Nonfiction/Literary Nonfiction, History/Humanities text, and Scientific/Technical Texts. However, in grades 1 and 2, the three informational text (nonfiction) genres are not differentiated, therefore all nonfiction is measured by Informational Text. In 3rd grade and up, the informational text genres are split into Nonfiction/Literary Nonfiction, History/Humanities Text, and Scientific/Technical Texts.
