MAP Family Report

What is the Klein MAP Family Report?
The Klein MAP Family Report provides a summary of how your child is performing academically, as measured by the most recent MAP Growth Test.  It also includes the RIT score for prior administrations if your student participated in the assessment.  This can be used to see your student's progress over time.
Where can I find the Klein MAP Family Report?
The report is located in your Skyward Family Portal under the Portfolio section for any student who participated in the MAP Growth Assessment.  
Why is my student taking MAP Growth?
MAP Growth scores help teachers check student performance by measuring Achievement and Growth.  Teachers use results to tailor classroom lessons and to set goals for students. 
How can I use this information to help my student?
Talk to your student's teacher.  Here are some questions you can ask: 

  • What types of strategies are the teachers using that I may be able to help reinforce at home? 
  • Does my student need extra help in any specific areas?
  • How can I help my student's academic growth from home?
  • How do you measure my student's learning in your classroom?
  • How is my student doing in comparison to grade-level expectations?
  • What will my student be working on to continue growing towards a mastery of grade-level standards? 
Where can I get more information?

What is a RIT Score?

After each MAP test, students receive a RIT score. The score reflects the student’s academic knowledge, skills, and abilities.  The RIT (Rasch Unit) scale is a stable, equal-interval scale.  Scores over time can be compared to tell how much growth a student has made, similar to measuring height of a student over time.

MAP assessments use the RIT scale to create a grade-independent RIT score, which indicates the level of question difficulty a given student is capable of answering correctly about 50% of the time. RIT scores help educators understand what every child is ready to learn. MAP tests produce scores that make it possible to monitor student growth from year to year.



What is an Achievement and Growth Percentile?

  • Achievement Percentile - Shows how well your student has learned the skills in a subject compared to students with same starting RIT score, same number of weeks of instruction, and in the same grade. 
  • Growth Percentile - A measure of your child's personal progress over a year or from one administration to another.  

What are the Instructional Areas?

Each assessment is made up of 3-4 instructional areas depending on the subject and grade level.  Each area is assigned a RIT score to help pinpoint the topic and skills your student is ready to tackle or what topics might need a little support.  Each instructional area is also given a rating of High, High Average, Average, Low Average and Low to indicate how they are performing in relation to the norms at their grade level. 

Ask your student's teacher for more information about what skills your student can work on to help your student grow!
