MAP Benchmarking

NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) presents students with engaging, age-appropriate content. As a student responds to questions, the MAP responds to the student, adjusting up or down in difficulty.

The result is a rewarding experience for the student, and a wealth of detailed information for teachers, parents and administrators.

The underlying data driving the assessment ensures remarkable accuracy, based on over 24 million assessments given during the past 30+ years. NWEA’s equal-interval RIT scale increases the stability, providing grade-independent analysis of a child’s learning.

For educators, it means at last having timely information that, used well, can change the course of a student’s school year — and life.


Once tested, your child will be assigned a RIT score in three areas. Your teacher will help you understand the scores once they are determined. Click here to see the ranges and additional documents you can use along with your child’s teacher to make learning gains.
