NWEA Assessment Scores

Parents will get their student’s scores from the recent NWEA MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) at Parent/Teacher conference.  The testing results are reported in RITs (Rauch Unit) on the report and in grade equivalent scores on the report card.  A RIT score is an estimation of a student’s instructional level and also measures student progress or growth in school.  We expect RIT scores to increase over time.  Parents and guardians should become comfortable with the understanding that individuals will grow at different rates.  Our goal is for teachers to use the data to differentiate and adjust instruction so that all students grow at levels appropriate for each individual.  If you have questions, please contact your student’s classroom teacher or Dr. Groover.
