What is MAP Skills?

MAP Skills is a suite of web-based assessments that quickly and easily measure students’ K–8 essential building block skills leading to college and career readiness. In Mathematics, Language Usage, and Vocabulary, MAP Skills measures K–8 skills. In Reading, MAP Skills measures grade 1-8 skills associated with comprehension, as well as reading comprehension at 8 levels of text complexity. See What are "levels of text complexity"? It does not address K-2 emergent literacy skills such as fluency, decoding, or phonics. See What is MAP Reading Fluency?

MAP Skills identifies which specific skills have been mastered, or still need work, and provides links to free instructional resources that you can use in the classroom or the student can review on their own.

Currently, MAP Skills is only available in the English language.
