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.

4th Grade MAP Reading Comprehension Question

Read the paragraph.

It was a rainy and dark night. My parents went to a concert and would return home late at night, so I was the only person in the house. I had already gone to bed when I suddenly heard the basement door squeaking. I thought that it was probably just the wind, but it wouldn't stop squeaking. I took out a flashlight and went quietly downstairs to the basement. When I finally reached the basement door, I saw my dog, Bucky, trying to open his screen door to the basement. It kept squeaking as he couldn't open it fully.

Which mood does the writer try to convey in the paragraph?

A) Loneliness
B) Sadness
C) Anger
D) Horror

Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is (D).

Mood is the feeling you get when you read a story. The mood's purpose in literature is to arouse certain feelings in the reader through words and descriptions. Mood is usually referred to as the atmosphere of the story.

The mood that the writer tries to convey in this paragraph is of fear and horror. You can understand this from the description of the setting in the story and the word choices: it was a dark and rainy night, and the person is all alone in the house, when he suddenly hears strange noises in the house. This is meant to arouse feelings of fear in the readers. Therefore, the correct answer is (D).

Answer (A): "loneliness" is incorrect, because even though one of the sentences is "I was the only person in the house," it goes on to the basement door squeaking, and not to how boring or sad it is to be alone.

Who Takes the 4th Grade MAP Test?

The NWEA 4th Grade MAP Test is taken by 4th graders in elementary schools all over the United States. The goal of the 4th Grade MAP Test is to measure a child’s ability in terms of his or her own progress rather than in comparison to others.

With MAP’s increasing popularity many schools have also began using the test as an indicator for whether or not a child is gifted. Preparation, therefore, has become important in order to ensure that your child gets the very most out of the exam.

4th Grade MAP Practice Tips

  • Map out the prepping process. Once your child takes our free 4th grade MAP sample test it will be much easier to pinpoint where his or her strengths and weaknesses are. Start with the challenging material first. If the math questions were a greater struggle than the language usage questions, for instance, you may want to begin with the MAP Math Section and move on to the MAP Language Usage Section during a later stage of preparing for the test.
  • Incorporate deadlines into your schedule. This will stop you from getting carried away by one topic, and forgetting about the next one.
  • Take breaks. Sitting down to study is important…but so is getting up. Make sure you are as strict with your child’s breaks as you are with his or her studying sessions.
  • Keep it fun. Studying doesn’t have to be completely boring. Be sure to include other activities as well: baking and sport games, for instance, are great ways to practice quick arithmetic skills and measurement conventions.
  • Keep healthy snacks available. Nutrition plays a vital role in information processing. Make sure your child gets all the vitamins and nutrients needed so that he or she can get the most out of each study session.
  • Maintain a proper sleeping schedule. Your child needs the energy to learn new information. Without a proper amount of sleep, your child is likely to lose focus and process new and challenging material at a slower rate.
  • Practice with actual 4th Grade MAP Sample Questions. It’s important that your child is comfortable with the testing content, as well as its format. All tests vary in question presentation and answer expectation. Don’t know where to go after our sample test? Try our 4th Grade MAP Practice Pack, which offers practice tests for every section of the exam.
