What is the NWEA 2nd Grade MAP Test? 

NWEA’s Measurement of Academic Progress, or MAP, is an academic aptitude test designed to adjust itself to each student’s abilities, regardless of age or grade. Educators often use these scores to better understand a child’s academic potential. A student’s results may also be used to understand his or her academic strengths and weaknesses. Many academic establishments use the test as a form of screening for various programs.

The 2nd Grade MAP test is a computerized test that measures the student’s abilities in math, language usage, reading comprehension, and for some grades, science. The test is untimed, but takes about an hour to complete. Students take the exam in a classroom setting. Since the 2nd grade MAP test does not require any heavy calculations, a calculator is not necessary. However, students do receive scrap paper to take notes and make calculations, if needed.

The MAP Test for 2nd Grade is adaptive, which means that if one question is answered correctly the next question becomes harder; if the question is answered incorrectly, the next question becomes easier.

Though it is not necessary, it is highly recommended to prepare for the MAP Test. Many topics on the test can be mastered simply through the right revision material. Proper preparation, therefore, provides a more accurate image of your second grader’s abilities. In addition, many academic establishments use MAP scores as admission material. Your child’s MAP score can mean entry into competitive gifted programs.

The MAP K-2 & the MAP 2-5

The NWEA has developed two forms of the MAP assessment for 2nd graders to take. The first is the MAP K-2. This test is an adjusted version of the MAP Test for students who cannot yet read. This test uses recorded instructions, which are heard rather than read.

The MAP 2-5 is a test that is designed for students who are already able to read. This test is taken in the same manner as any other test.

TestPrep-Online will soon offer a 2nd Grade MAP Practice Pack designed according to the MAP Growth 2-5 Structure. Subscribe for updates now!

2nd Grade MAP Test Scores

For score calculations, NWEA uses the Rasch Unit Scale (RIT). This scale is an equal interval scale that functions like a ruler. The scale allows for the student’s skills to be appraised individually, as each point remains the same regardless of age or grade.

2nd Grade MAP & The Common Core

The Common Core is a set of learning standards used in many schools in the United States, which dictates what knowledge and skills a student should obtain by the end of a specific school year. Like many other standardized tests in the United States, NWEA’s MAP has incorporated the Common Core into its testing material. Questions appearing in the 2nd Grade MAP Test are, therefore, based on the content of the Common Core guidelines for 2nd Grade.

Though TestPrep-Online’s practice tests for 2nd Grade MAP are not adaptive like the original test, they do incorporate standards of the Common Core that appear on the exam, and are based on the same standards and the RIT range for second grade.
