We use NWEA and students in grades 1 through 5 do MAP testing three times a year. We also dp state testing in May, but teachers get much more individualized data, as well as class data with NWEA MAP. Delivery of data is within 24 hours of testing, which is a big plus. Also, NWEA data is much easier for parents, and students to understand, because you can print the graphs to show growth.

Teachers use data to write instructional goals that focus on the weakest area for their class as a whole. Also, data is used to create small groups to address specific skills as identified by Descartes.

Students in the lower quartile receive small group intervention, as required by NCLB.

MAP has made our instruction much more focused and individualized.
