Tip: Which test to assign students

Discussion created by Danielle Kerns on Aug 30, 2019

Take a look at some of these helpful resources below to help determine the most appropriate test type and subject that you would like to have your students take. MAP tests are not timed and students should be allowed to take as long as they need to complete it. If a designated time limit approaches while testing or if students need a break, consider suspending their test and have them complete it at a later time. NWEA recommends that suspended tests be completed within 14 days of the start date, however, tests can still be resumed if they are within the 28-day start date rule.


Encourage students to take their time and to do their best. Let them know that a MAP test is not only looking for things that they should know but also what they are ready to learn next!
