How does the Ready for Locator card determine what Skills Locator a student is ready for?


Which students are considered ready?

The Ready for Locator card will assign skills locators to the students who meet all of the following criteria:

  • Have a RIT score in the subject
  • Do not have any current "Needs Work" skills in the subject

Which Skills Locators will be assigned?

The Ready for Locator card finds the student's lowest instructional area in their most recent MAP test in the subject, and assigns a Skills Locator for each strand in that instructional area. Instructional areas typically have between 3 and 5 strands, depending on the test.

If a student already has a Skills Locator assigned for a strand, they will not be assigned another locator for that strand.
