I’m an 8th grader and I just took my end-of-year tests. I got a 270 on the math test, and I’m trying to figure out what percentile that is, but I can’t find anywhere that will convert the scores to percentiles. Is there a way you know of?

TestingMom.com

Hi Rochelle,

Please give us a call at 877-609-6203 so we can discuss the test results with you.

Ella

I am in Sixth Grade and just took my end of the year tests. I scored an 249 for reading, and a 247 for math. I am actually disappointed in my math score, because I am up a grade in math, and did not make the 95th percentile, as I have been working very hard all year. I am glad I am at least in the 95th percentile in reading in 8th grade. What percentile exactly would my tests be in each grade?

TestingMom.com

Hi Ella,

Please email us at help@testingmom.com. We will be able to better explain how the percentile scores work for the end-of-year exams. We also offer many practice questions from tests such as IOWA, ITBS and MAP that will help you prepare for the end-of-year exams.

Izzy

You should do NWEA tests scores.

TestingMom.com

Hi Izzy,

Along with the page for the NWEA MAP test scores, we also have the page “How is the NWEA MAP Test Scored?.” Use the search bar at the top of our page to find that link. This will help break down how the NWEA MAP is scored. If you have any other questions, please email us at help@testingmom.com.

I am in 8th grade and am in all honors classes. I just took my first maps test for english and am very disappointed in my score. My first question is this, how can I significantly improve my third MAPS test before I go into high school. I am aiming to be in all honors classes in high school as well, so I am currently aiming for 255 or above Thirdly, I am taking my math MAPS tomorrow and I am aiming for 250 or above. What can I do to reach my goal? I care very much about school and want to be in the 250’s or above for both math, reading, and hopefully science when we take that in December.

I am in 6th grade and i took my winter tests, I scored 242 in reading and 250 in math. I am trying to find what percentile I scored at.

Hi Jay,

We do not provide scoring conversions from the RIT score to a percentile.

All the best,

Adel

I’m in 6th grade; I got a 232 in Language Usage and I’m very disappointed. I think it was because I kept getting asked questions that I have never been taught so I got basically the whole test wrong. My mom said most adults wouldn’t know the correct grammer usage. Is that why my score went down?

TestingMom.com

A score of 232 in the language usage section of the MAP test for a 6th grader shows you performed well on this portion of the exam. Scores on the MAP test range from 100 to 300 for each section and the higher the score, the higher mastery of the material. The national average is around 220 so at 232 it’s well above the national average. Of course, that also means there is room for how to improve your MAP test score for next time.

Here are a few things you can do to improve your score:
1. Focus on building your vocabulary and grammar skills by reading books and other written materials.
2. Practice writing and editing your own work to improve your writing skills.
3. Take a writing class like the ones we offer at Testing Mom with our expert instructors. Our classes are live and provide individual guidance on how to improve your writing.

Another way to improve your language usage score is to focus on your test-taking strategies. Learn techniques for answering multiple-choice questions more effectively, such as eliminating obviously incorrect answers before selecting a final choice. Additionally, work on your time management skills to make sure you have enough time to get through all the questions on the MAP test.
