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.

The 3rd grade MAP Math Test covers the following topics: 
  • Numbers and Operations: using mental math to count and make calculations
  • Operations and Algebraic Thinking: applying basic math functions of fractions and 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.
