Question
Which grades is MAP Reading Fluency appropriate for? Can we use MAP Reading Fluency for students beyond 3rd grade? Can students "graduate" out of MAP Reading Fluency?

Answer
MAP Reading Fluency is designed for students in grades K-3. Students can start taking MAP Reading Fluency in fall of kindergarten. Students in pre-kindergarten are also able to take MAP Reading Fluency, although the assessment is not designed for pre-K students.

When students can read independently and with literal understanding, they outgrow MAP Reading Fluency. They may "graduate" or hit a performance ceiling in MAP Reading Fluency before the end of third grade. In these situations, it is appropriate to discontinue use of MAP Reading Fluency for students who show third grade levels of fluency and literal comprehension.

Students above grade three cannot currently use MAP Reading Fluency. Older, struggling readers may use MAP Skills for reading, or can take MAP Growth with appropriate accommodations, as per your district accommodation policy.
