NWEA® MAP® Growth™ assessment tests are the best solution for meeting Hawaii homeschool testing requirements. The Hawaii MAP test is a nationally normed test that assesses student growth. Affordable Homeschool Testing Services LLC is currently providing MAP Growth tests in reading, math, and language usage as an extended option. We make use of the 2015 norms and apply the same version of MAP Growth tests currently in use in educational establishments all over the nation. The untimed, online tests can be completed on a PC, laptop, tablet, or Chromebook and administered remotely by Homeschool Boss. There is no degree requirement for parents.
Families commonly start their reading test on Monday, math on Tuesday, language usage on Wednesday and receive the score report on Friday that same week.
Computer-adaptive MAP Growth assessments reveal which academic skills and concepts the student has acquired and what they’re ready to learn. MAP Growth assessments are grade independent and adapt to each student’s performance level. Every item on a MAP Growth assessment is anchored to a vertically aligned equal interval scale, called the RIT scale for Rasch UnIT—a stable measurement, like inches on a ruler, that covers all grades.
And because the measurement is reliable and accurate, RIT scores serve as an essential data point in a student’s learning plan; educators can see a student’s precise learning level and respond accordingly.
MAP Growth assessment creates a personalized experience by adjusting to each student’s learning level—accurately measuring the performance, skills, and growth of each individual. You’ll receive essential information about what each student knows and is ready to learn within the week.
