Online Homeschool Standardized Testing with NWEA MAP
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) is a nationally-normed standardized test used in many public schools and now available to the homeschool market. This computer-adaptive test adjusts to fit your child as they take the test, whether they are working at, above, or below grade level. Because the MAP® is tailored to your child’s learning level, it can precisely measure their academic progress and growth in a brief test. Test on Monday and Tuesday and on Friday you’ll receive a thorough report designed specifically for the needs of homeschool parents, with the specific skills your child demonstrated in the test, what they are ready to learn next, and where they stand compared to current academic standards.
Available anywhere in the US, including in Georgia, GA, Minnesota, MN, New Hampshire, NH, North Carolina, NC, Ohio, OH, Pennsylvania, PA, Washington, WA, Virginia, VA

What is the MAP standardized test?
Measures of Academic Progress® (NWEA MAP Tests) are K – 12 interim assessments that measure growth and inform how educators differentiate instruction, evaluate programs, and structure curriculum.
The Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) Tests are nationally normed, standardized achievement tests that assess student growth.
