What is MAP Reading Fluency?

MAP Reading Fluency is an online adaptive reading assessment for students in grades PK-8 who are learning to read. It measures foundational reading skills, with an emphasis on oral fluency. For more details, see About MAP Reading Fluency in the MAP Help Center.

Students read aloud into the computer or iPad using a headset-mounted microphone. Patented speech scoring software scores the oral reading samples and teachers get detailed information about student performance in terms of words-correct-per-minute, decoding accuracy, and passage comprehension. Pre-readers are assessed on early literacy skills including letter knowledge, phonics, phonemic awareness, listening comprehension, and picture vocabulary. Teachers get reports of performance on each subtest and are able to listen to, annotate, and optionally hand-score students’ recorded reading.

Currently, MAP Reading Fluency is supported in the Chrome web browser for Mac, PC, and Chromebook, and the MAP Reading Fluency Testing app for iPad. For more information, see Setting up for Testing in the MAP Help Center.
