MAP Growth is a computer adaptive test. As the student answers correctly, questions get harder. If the student answers incorrectly, the questions get easier. By the end of the test, most students will have answered about half the questions correctly, as is common on adaptive tests. The purpose of MAP Growth is to determine what the student knows and is ready to learn next. 

MAP Growth can also track students’ individual growth over time, wherever they are starting from and regardless of the grade they are in.  Both things are incredibly important for a teacher to know so that they can plan instruction efficiently.

MAP Growth es una prueba adaptativa por computadora. A medida que el alumno responde correctamente, las preguntas se vuelven más difíciles. Si el alumno responde incorrectamente, las preguntas se vuelven más fáciles. Al final de la prueba, la mayoría de los estudiantes habrán respondido aproximadamente la mitad de las preguntas correctamente, como es común en las pruebas adaptativas. El propósito de MAP Growth es determinar qué sabe el estudiante y qué está listo para aprender a continuación.  MAP Growth también puede rastrear el crecimiento individual de los estudiantes a lo largo del tiempo, donde sea que estén comenzando e independientemente del grado en el que se encuentren. Ambas cosas son increíblemente importantes para que un maestro sepa para que pueda planificar la instrucción de manera eficiente.
