MAP Test Practice for 3rd Grade
The MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) test for 3rd graders is a test used to measure the academic progress of a student during their 3rd grade year. The MAP test is an adaptive test that changes as the student answers questions.
At the 3rd grade level, students who take the MAP test will most likely be taking the MAP Growth test, which is a test designed to assess a student’s growth from term to term and figure out what they should be learning next.
The MAP Growth test for 3rd graders has 4 subjects that a student will encounter: reading, language, math, and science.
What shows up on your child’s MAP Growth test will be dependent on their school, state, and district. However, there are a few topics that are very likely to come up on your child’s test that should be the focuses of your preparation.
MAP® Reading for Grade 3
The MAP Growth Reading sub-test for 3rd graders is meant to assess a child’s skills in areas such as reading comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. The test is adaptive, with the question difficulty adjusting according to the number of correct or incorrect answers a student gives. Because of this, your child may see questions below or above their grade level.
The MAP Growth Reading sub-test will have around 40-43 questions, which will be pulled from the MAP’s Reading 2-5 question bank. While the test is untimed, it will take your child approximately 45-60 minutes to complete this sub-test. The reading sub-test for 3rd graders is meant for independent readers.
While your child’s MAP Growth Reading sub-test standards are determined by factors such as location and teacher, here are some skills you may want to prepare your child for.
