MAP® Assessments

Willowdale Christian School uses MAP Growth Assessments to monitor progress and growth of all their students in Grades 1-8. These assessments are prepared by the Northwest Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™). 

NWEA™ is a global not-for-profit educational services organization.  As part of the program, all students in grades 1 – 8 will complete a series of assessments based on math, language usage and reading three times a year which make up the Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) assessment tool.  MAP® creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level- precisely measuring student progress and growth for each individual.  The three assessment periods are during the fall, the winter, and then in the spring.
