The Spring Semester has begun here at AOA, and that means it’s time for our annual achievement testing!
AOA uses the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test through the Northwest Evaluation Association for our achievement testing. The MAP test is unique in that it is taken online and the test is adaptive to the student’s ability. When students begin the test, the first question is at their grade level. If the question is answered correctly, the next question is slightly more difficult. From there, the test gets progressively more difficult with each correct answer and slightly easier with each incorrect answer. Thus, the MAP test is successful in identifying the actual academic level of students as it adapts back and forth to find the level of academic comprehension, knowledge, and skills. The MAP test is comprised of three sections: language arts, reading, and math.
