Tirana International School utilizes the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test in order to help our students and teachers understand and plan for growth. As an adaptive assessment, MAP is able to provide level appropriate questions for students that help them demonstrate their own level of achievement. Because of this, each testing session is slightly different as assessments draw from a large digital bank of questions in order to determine areas of strength and growth. Once testing is complete, educators are given immediate results so that we might identify targets for future learning and plan for the next level of success. Discussion of MAP results and individualized plans are a key part of our parent and student led conferences. We encourage you to visit the NWEA website to learn more about how you as parents can be involved in this important process.
