NWEA® MAP® Growth™ tests are the preferred choice when it comes to meeting New Hampshire (NH) homeschool testing requirements. MAP Growth is a nationally normed test that assesses student growth. Homeschool Boss provides MAP Growth tests in reading, math, and language usage (optional). We use the 2015 norms and the same version of MAP Growth tests currently in use in schools across the country. The untimed, virtual tests can be completed on various electronic devices including PCs, laptops, tablets, and Chromebooks. They are managed remotely by Homeschool Boss. There is no degree requirement for parents.
It is very common for students to start the reading test on Monday, math on Tuesday, and language usage on Wednesday and receive their scores by 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 creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level—precisely measuring the performance and growth of each individual. You’ll have essential information about what each student knows and is ready to learn within the week.
