What Is the NWEA 4th Grade MAP Test?

NWEA's 4th Grade MAP Test is an adaptive, computerized test that focuses on the student's abilities in language usage, reading, and math. This exam allows parents and teachers to better understand students' academic needs and areas of growth throughout the school year. Teachers may also use this MAP test to determine whether a student needs to be placed in a specific academic program.

A high MAP score can give your fourth grader the opportunity to achieve further academic success. It is, therefore, highly recommended to prepare your child for the test. Ideal preparation involves a structured practice program, plenty of subject-specific sample tests, and focused material.

Our practice material offers not only the material needed to practice but also the material needed to learn and progress. With over 800 questions to work with, as well as thorough explanations for each answer, TestPrep-Online's 4th Grade MAP practice pack means success for any student willing to learn.

4th Grade MAP Test Scores

MAP tests are graded using the Rasch-Unit scale (RIT). The RIT scale functions as an equal-interval scale that measures each student’s abilities regardless of grade level. This measuring system can be compared to a ruler, in that the difference between each two RIT scores remains the same regardless of whether they are on the top or the bottom of the scale. Ultimately, the purpose of the scale is to provide parents, teachers, and students alike the opportunity to see how much they have progressed academically.

The MAP Test & The Common Core

Since the use of the Common Core has increased so dramatically in the past few years, NWEA has adjusted every MAP test, including the fourth grade edition, to incorporate its criteria. TestPrep-Online offers practice tests that are adjusted to fit the test's Common Core curriculum. Our NWEA MAP for 4th Grade practice pack covers every component of the Common Core mentioned on the 4th grade MAP Test, making it easier for your child to reach the score he or she deserves.

How to Prepare for the NWEA MAP 4th Grade

To prepare for the 4th Grade MAP test, the golden rule of practice, practice, practice applies. To optimize your fourth grader's practice sessions, practice material should be divided into what is more difficult for the student, and what is easier.

With a variety of practice material to offer, our MAP for 4th grade practice pack is able to help provide a direct reflection of what the student needs during each studying section. Our package includes NWEA replicated practice tests for 4th Grade as well as several sample questions to work with. Your child will not only be able to improve topic-specific knowledge, but also learn several new topics, all imperative to the test.

"My 3rd grade daughter was recommended to take the CogAT. She is very analytical and we loved the explanations as they helped her to understand the material. I have already recommended TestPrep-Online to other parents as it is a helpful tool and less expensive than a private tutor."
