MAP/Diebels Purpose

Is it normal for a school to place students in Intervention based solely off their MAP scores? I find this to be a little odd, but after talking with the curriculum coach, she said this is best practices. I've always thought best practices were to group them according to their reading levels. My district uses DIEBELS, so there aren't really reading levels. Students are grouped according to their Lexile score on MAP. Maybe I've just been out of education for too long (took a 2 year break to have and stay home with a baby), but this just doesn't make sense to me. How does your school's curriculum coach view this data?

Yes, initially my building places students using data from MAP. However, we know this isn't perfect and have the option to move students after if we realize they need more or less support.

And technically Lexile does give you some information on their reading level. It's just not quite as exact as saying they are reading at a level M.

In my school, intervention students for reading must have 24% or below on MAPS and be two or more guided reading levels below their grade level expectation (for that time of year) based on Fountas and Pinnell testing.

Intervention students for math must have 24% or below on MAPS and poor scores (1s and 2s) on Everyday Math chapter tests.

A lexile is a reading level.

For 5th-8th grade, we do. Any student below the 24th percentile are automatically put in our Read180 class.
