4. Get Grounded

As your children are testing, please keep in mind that the MAP Growth is designed to challenge all students. Because of this your child will be asked questions they cannot yet answer correctly.

This does not mean they are doing poorly on the test – it means the test is working! The test adapts to the level that is providing the correct amount of challenge.

Encourage them to think about the question, eliminate any obviously wrong answers, and then take their best guess. Students typically answer about half the questions correctly on the MAP Growth.

Also remember that MAP Growth tests are not pass/fail. Every time they test, every student is successfully showing what they know, what they are ready to learn, and what they need some more focus on.
