I am really happy with my MAP preparation purchase. My boys scored in the 99 percentile for 2nd and 5th grade!
Excellent service! I bought a MAP pack and wrote to ask about grade differences. TestPrep-Online quickly responded with an extensive list of points. I greatly appreciated this service. They went above and beyond!
Very helpful! I used the MAP 4th grade practice pack and the practice questions were very close to what the actual test was like. I passed with flying colours.

We use the MAP prep packs in class. We currently use TestPrep-Online's materials to help students prepare for MAP 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade tests. We believe the prep packs have had a positive influence on the students.

My son was preparing for CogAT Level 9. With practice, my son got used to the question styles and the practice built his confidence with the exam. Once kids know they can do well, there is no limit – they will always do their best. I have recommended TestPrep-Online to all my friends.
My 3rd grade daughter was recommended to take the CogAT. We loved the explanations as they helped her to understand the material. The packs are a helpful tool and less expensive than a private tutor.
We got the CogAT practice tests for our daughter. She nailed the test and I would totally recommend TestPrep-Online to other parents.
We used the CogAT practice tests and I would definitely recommend it to other parents. I liked that my child had both the timed and step-by-step options when taking a practice test.

What Is the NWEA MAP Test for 3rd Grade?

The MAP Test for 3rd grade is an untimed, computer-generated test divided into three subjects: math, language usage, and reading. It is a great way for both teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of a student’s progress throughout the year, as well as a student's instructional needs. It is also a way for schools to test whether students need to be placed in a special program.

Despite being a standardized test, a child can—and should—prepare for the MAP test beforehand, since MAP Test scores can be a deciding factor for placement in either regular or gifted classes. To help you prepare, TestPrep-Online offers a full 3rd Grade MAP test practice pack.

NWEA MAP Test Aligned with the Common Core

As the Common Core becomes more widespread across schools in the United States, many standardized and gifted tests are adapting to its standards. The MAP test for 3rd grade is no exception. For this reason, TestPrep-Online has developed practice tests that follow MAP's Common Core scheme. With our 3rd Grade MAP practice pack, you can ensure that your third grader is exposed to all the topics aligned with the Common Core, and is getting top-notch practice for the test.

The NWEA MAP Math Section

The MAP Math section for 3rd grade includes four general areas that are typically covered by the time the student reaches 3rd grade:

  • Numbers and Operations: using mental math to count and make calculations
  • Operations & Algebraic Thinking: applying basic functions of fractions & decimals
  • Algebra: solving equations with missing information
  • Geometry: applying concepts in geometry, such as symmetrical and parallel lines

Most questions do not require a calculator, but for those that do, an on-screen calculator will appear. Test takers are also given scratch paper for working out problems. On average, there are 53 questions on the math section. However, this number is subject to change due to the test's adaptive nature.
