As the leaves begin to turn and fall, and back-to-school begins to feel like it's the distant past, we're looking ahead to the following updates to MAP® Skills™, effective October 15, 2018. Since you may be the only recipient of this email within your district, we encourage you to forward this on to teachers and others who might benefit from this information. You can also find details of current and past partner updates in our community.
New progress graph designed with your needs in mind
The MAP Skills progress graphs have been completely redesigned based directly on your feedback and extensive testing with MAP Skills partners.
Select the new “Student Progress” tab in the top menu header to find all your student information in one place. This new page saves you clicks by condensing the student skills, missions, and progress details onto a single page. The progress graph is also easier to read, so you can quickly see if your students are on pace to meet their goals.
From the redesigned page you can also:
- view the progress goal as a percentage based on instructional weeks remaining until target goal
- easily track progress over time with a weekly summary of skills changes
- see the history of an individual skill and create assignments directly from the page
Note: This new page replaces the previous “Students” tab in the top menu header.
New student passwords tab
Finding and managing student passwords is now easier than ever. Access the student password page under “Passwords” in the main menu header.
Support added for new Apple OS and browser versions
Partners can now update the OS of their Apple products, and use recently purchased Apple products that came with these updates, including Apple’s iOS12, MacOS 10.14 Mojave, and Safari 12.0 for:
- MAP Growth, including MAP Growth K-2
- State Summative
- MAP Skills
