NWEA Partner Update - MAP Skills




February partner update

Spring is looming ‘round the bend; and just as we can see the flowers and trees blossoming, we can see growth in our students too (physically and academically). MAP® Skills™ is the ideal way to find gaps and unlock that growth, and the following upgrade—effective Monday, February 19—adds flexibility to better meet your needs.

Heat Map report is just a click away

You can now export the Heat Map report in a .CSV file with just one click.



Assign missions directly from the MAP Growth Student Profile Report

Users with both the Administrator and SN administrator system roles can now assign MAP Skills missions directly from the MAP® Growth™ Student Profile Report for any student rostered at their school(s). If you can “View As” a teacher, this new feature gives you the ability to assign missions on behalf of that teacher.



Updates to the “Assignments” tab make it more helpful than ever

  • Specific skills assigned in a “Mastery Check” can now be seen in the “Results/Status” column, even if the skill hasn't been completed or started
  • A label now shows the strand each “Skills Locator” has been assigned to
  • The “Due Date” column now says “Date Completed,” so you know when your students finished their assignments; you will still be alerted if the assignment is not completed by the set due date

Re-usable Resource missions

In case you missed the December partner update, assigned resources are now saved to your students’ dashboards for the entire school year. Students can access any resource mission that has been assigned to them, even after they’ve already viewed it. This feature allows students to re-use resources as needed for additional practice and saves teachers valuable time by not requiring them to re-assign resources that a student has already opened. Once viewed, the mission will be archived under “Viewed Resources” on the student’s missions page.
