The practice tests are all the same questions. No matter what grade you select. I really want to use practice test questions as warm-ups.
The purpose of the practice tests is to familiarize students with the test player and tools and not as a warm-up to prepare them for content. Check out the Student Resources page to help students prepare for MAP Growth testing. Let us know if you have any additional questions.
Is there any resource where the teacher can get example questions ?
Questions we can review in a whole or small group setting. We like to use
questions that use the same format and language as the map test

Check out the RIT Reference Charts in our Teacher Toolkit. They demonstrate the relationship between question difficulty and our RIT scale.
Yes, I have seen that and love that resource. Is there any other way or
resource to generate practice questions?

I'm adding some of our consultants to this conversation to see what ideas they might have for you.

There aren't any more sample question resources that Angela hasn't already linked for you (student resources and the RIT samples). However, have you seen the RIT to Concept resource we have? It shows vocabulary that students could encounter by RIT band. The teachers at my school love this resource as it helps us unify our language while also expanding our students vocabulary understanding. Here's the link:https://teach.mapnwea.org/assist/doc/RITConceptsReference.pdf
Another idea that could be helpful is looking at www.lexile.com and using the lexile analyzer. You can analyze a writing sample from your students and encourage them by setting a lexile score writing goal that is higher. This will only be achieved when they increase sentence length and use better vocabulary. You can use the lexile wordlists on this site too.....another vocabulary resource for you.
I know these tools are not focused on the questions we have in our adaptive tests but I do think they will help your students analyze the content of the questions to think critically about what is being asked.
