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

The informational texts 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 nonfiction genres are not differentiated, therefore all nonfiction is measured by Informational Text. In 3rd grade and up, the nonfiction genres are split into Nonfiction/Literary Nonfiction, History/Humanities Text, and Scientific/Technical Texts.
