something to think about
4
What questions do you want answered today?
  • What do you want to know about MAP assessments
    and the reports you will receive?
  • How can this workshop meet the needs of your
    district?

5
NWEA Partner Districts
We partner with schools and districts to help all
kids learn.
British Columbia
NJ
LA
FLA
Venezuela
6
Our Purpose
  • Our purpose is to help all kids learn
  • more tomorrow than today,
  • more next year than this year.
  • Our purpose is growth and
  • improvement of learning.

7
NWEA Mission
  • Partnering
  • to help
  • all kids learn

8
Quick Survey
  • Have you attended a MAP Intro workshop?
  • What do you already know about MAP?

9
Pre-Assessment
  • How is MAP different from conventional
    assessments?
  • What does the RIT scale measure?
  • What are some of the features of the RIT scale?
  • How does the MAP system know where to give a
    student the first question?
  • How soon is data available after a student takes
    a MAP test?

10
Assumptions of Graded Schools
  • Curriculum scale
  • Skills taught may begin with associating sounds
    with letters in K-1, to adult levels in high
    school
  • Typically, we feel restricted to covering
    specific curricula related to adopted grade level
    standards

Does this design meet the needs of all students?
11
How does classroom reality relate to our
assumptions?
  • We have students performing above, at, and below
    this grade level curriculum
  • How does this impact assessment and instruction?
  • The profound challenge

How do we foster growth for all students?
12
Instructional Level vs. Mastery
  • The NWEA test provides the instructional level of
    the student.
  • It provides a road map for students toward
    achieving mastery.
  • It is not a test for determining mastery of
    skills.

13
Features of the MAP Test
  • Challenging, appropriate and dynamically
    developed for every student
  • Accurate data for students across the scale
  • Untimed
  • Purpose is internal accountability
  • Measures growth in student achievement
  • Immediate results
  • Can test up to 4 times a year

RIT (Rasch Unit) Scale
  • Achievement scale
  • Curriculum Scale
  • Equal interval
  • Shows Growth over time
  • Consistent scale

16
Checkpoint
  • How is MAP different from conventional
    assessments?
  • What does the RIT scale measure?
  • What are some of the features of the RIT scale?
  • How does the MAP system know where to give a
    student the first question?
  • How soon is data available after a student takes
    a MAP test?

17

18
How do I know which test to give?
  • GOALS Survey
  • 42-52 items
  • 1 hour to administer
  • Gives information on goal areas
  • Most commonly used fall and spring
  • Survey
  • 20 items
  • 30 minutes to administer
  • NO INFORMATION on goal areas
  • OVERALL RIT only
  • Most commonly used for intake and winter testing

Correct Test Handout - Goal Structure
19
Role of MAP Coordinator
  • Key point of contact
  • Distributes all user names and passwords
  • Receives all updates
  • Coordinates the entire process
  • New Class Roster File

Handbook Pages 4-7 Roles and Responsibilities
20
Principal
  • Distributes user names and passwords
  • Assists with scheduling

21
Typical Testing Scenario
  • Teacher gives Proctor a numbered class list
  • Teacher tells students what computer number they
    will use
  • Proctor uses numbered list to set up lab
  • Teacher brings class to the lab on time
  • Teacher and Proctor help seat students
  • Proctor reads directions and monitors test
  • Teacher remains in lab, takes students back to
    class after test session is finished

22
Proctors Teachers
Before Testing Ready computers MAKE SURE CORRECT TESTS ARE ASSIGNED!!! Number class lists to computers Have scratch paper and pencils available for Math Let students know their computer assignments Show the MAP Student Presentation to students Have students bring a book to read in case they finish early Bring class to computer lab
During Testing Read directions Monitor test event Invalidate tests Log scores and/or print screen Remain in lab if possible
After Testing Prepare computers for the next group Upload data to NWEA at end of every day (sometimes this is a Tech responsibility) Access and analyze teacher reports Discuss student scores with parents and students Implement necessary instructional modifications
23
One Week Prior to Testing
  • Provide list(s) of students
  • Seating arrangements
  • Special testing arrangements
  • Review schedule
  • Prepare students

Handbook Pages 8-9 Reminders for Teachers

Allowable Accommodations
  • No reading any part of language usage or reading
    test
  • May help with a difficult word in math as long as
    no additional clues are given
  • If IEP allows test to be read to student, this
    may be done in math or science
  • If one-on-one testing is needed for a student,
    plan ahead

Handbook Pages 10 Allowable Accommodations and
Modifications
29
Day of Testing
  • Take break before lab
  • Students should bring a book to read after
    testing

A Lexile is
A unit for measuring text difficulty that is
linked to the RIT score, Northwest Evaluation
Associations unit for measuring reading
comprehension. These links allow teachers to use
the students RIT score to find books,
periodicals, and other reading materials that
will be appropriately challenging for each
student.
61
The Lexile score represents
Lexile
NWEA RIT
the level of text that a student can read with
75 comprehension. For a student with a RIT of
205, books with a 600 Lexile provide an excellent
match with the students instructional reading
level. The book, After the Rain by Norma Mazer is
a 600L text.
62
Look at the Lexile as a range of scores
