When viewing MAP Reading Fluency Reports, you are unable to see a word count per minute (WCPM) score and instead see "NS".

NS means "no score", and it indicates that the computer scoring wasn't able to assess the student's reading. Either the student read less than 75% of the passage, or there were issues with the audio recording that prevented the computer scoring from working correctly. The student can either retest, or you can hand-score the recording. For more information, see:
If students are getting NS frequently, make sure you are following our recommendations for setting up student testing devices and headphones in the MAP Help Center here: Setting Up for Testing.
