With the arrival of fall, we adjust to the change in seasons. We may ready our yards, switch out summer clothes for warmer ones, and we start cooking warmer and heartier meals. Here at NWEA, we think about how to make MAP® Reading Fluency™ an even better tool for your winter testing. The following updates are 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 research test forms added
Two new research test forms have been added to the assignments page within MAP Reading Fluency.
Any partners who are not participating in current research programs should ignore these research options and continue to utilize the Adaptive Oral Reading or Foundational Skills test forms.
Partners participating in the research program can now begin testing students using these test forms per the research program guidelines.
When assigning the research test form:
- Go to the assignments page
- Select the students who will be tested as part of the research program
- Select the appropriate test form option at the top of the page—either Research Only: English or Research Only: Spanish
- Click assign
- Follow the standard student login process for students to access the research test
As a reminder, only raw scores and audio files will be provided for the research assessments. These results will not appear on the student matrix but can be accessed from the individual report page for participating students.
If you have any questions regarding participation in the MAP Reading Fluency research programs, please contact the research coordinator, Brian Tosky.
