MAP Tests for Kindergarten through 1st grade

There are three different kinds of MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Tests for students grades Kindergarten through 1st grade. Depending on your student’s needs, school, and teacher, each test may be administered to evaluate their academic progress. The three kinds of tests are: Screening Test, Skills Checklist Test, and MAP Growth Test.

Screening Test

The MAP Screening test for Early Learners is used to get baseline information for new students. This test will only be used for Kindergarten or pre-K students. The test adapts after each “Initial Sub-skill Section”, where students who get less than 4 questions correct will get a less difficult section, and students who get 4 or 5 correct will get a more difficult section.

Early learners will be tested for Math Numeracy and Reading Literacy only.

The Screening: Mathematics Early Numeracy test will have 35 questions.

In the Mathematics Early Numeracy Test’s Initial Sub-skill Section, students will be tested for:

  • Counts: Counts 1 to 10 and One-to-One Correspondence for 1 to 10
  • Number/Numeral: Identifies Numerals 1 to 10
  • Computation: Computes with Manipulatives: Moving Objects

If the child is moved to the Less Difficult Adaptive Section, they will be tested on:

  • Counts: Rote Counting — Counts to a Number
  • Number/Numeral: Matches Numerals 1 to 10
  • Computation: Identifies Numbers of Objects: More/Fewer

If the child is moved to the More Difficult Adaptive Section, they will be tested on:

  • Counts: One-to-One Correspondence for 11 to 20
  • Number/Numeral: Identifies Numerals 11 to 20
  • Computation: Computes with Manipulatives: Numerical Answer

The Screening: Reading Early Literacy test will have 33 questions.

In the Reading Early Literacy Test’s Initial Sub-skill Section, students will be tested for

  • Phonological Awareness: Rhyming Words
  • Visual Discrimiation/Phonics: Letter Identification
  • Concepts of Print: Orientation to the Page

If the student is moved to the Less Difficult Adaptive Section, they will be tested on:

  • Phonological Awareness: Matching Sounds
  • Visual Discrimination/Phonics: Visual Discrimination of Words
  • Concepts of Print: Understanding Pre-Reading Behaviors

If the student is moved to the More Difficult Adaptive Section, they will be tested on:

  • Phonological Awareness: Manipulating Sounds
  • Visual Discrimination/Phonics: Matching Sounds to Letters
  • Concepts of Print: Identify Title/Author and Counting Words

MAP Growth

The MAP Growth test for Kindergarten through 1st grade (K-1) is an adaptive test used to assess the growth of a student from one term to the next, and figure out what the student is next ready to learn. For these grade levels, the MAP Growth Math K-2 (Early Learners) and Reading K-2 (Early Learners) are used. Because children may not know how to read yet, headphones are used and some questions will be read aloud. This is a broader assessment test that can be given to students each term. They may also be aligned with specific state standards.

MAP Reading Kindergarten – Grade 2

MAP Growth Reading K-2 (Early Learners) is approximately 40 minutes long with two 20-minute sessions, although the test is untimed. The test will have around 43 questions.

What appears on your child’s test will be dependent on what state & school district your child is in. Because the test is adaptive, your child may see questions from above their grade level. The Reading K-2 has content for pre-readers and beginning readers, with some questions read aloud via headphones and others that require independent reading, depending on how the test adapts to your child.

Here are some areas that your child may be expected to know on their MAP Reading K-2 test:
