What is MAP testing?
MAP is a testing program used by the Poway Unified School District to help teachers determine student growth and areas of need in specific language arts and mathematics skill areas.
Which grade levels participate in MAP testing?
All elementary and middle school students participate in MAP testing.  Some 9th grade students also take the MAP tests.
How are the MAP tests administered?
The MAP tests are individually administered on a computer.  This technology allows the test to be adjusted to meet each individual student’s appropriate testing level.
How often do students take the MAP tests?
Students take the tests three times each year (fall, winter, and spring) so that learning goals and classroom instruction can be adjusted, based on a student’s most current level of performance.
How do parents receive the results of their child’s MAP testing?
MAP testing results are shared with parents at conferences and are usually sent home at each grading period. 
Where can parents and students get more information about MAP testing?
