NWEA (MAP’s) - Parent Toolkit
MAP® assessments are used to measure your student’s progress or growth in school. You may have a chart in your home on which you mark your child’s height at certain times, such as on his or her birthday. This is a growth chart. It shows how much he or she has grown from one year to the next. MAP® assessments do the same sort of thing, except they measure your child’s growth in mathematics, reading and language usage. The scale used to measure your child’s progress is called the RIT scale (Rasch unIT). The RIT scale is an equal-interval scale much like feet and inches on a yardstick. It is used to chart your child’s academic growth from year to year.

Nebraska State Accountability - NeSA - includes all state tests: NeSA-W (Writing) NeSA-R (Reading) NeSA-M (Mathematics) NeSA-S (Science) NeSA-AA (Alternate Assessments in Reading, Mathematics, and Science).  As required in the amended Quality Education Accountability Act, 79-760, the Nebraska Department of Education has built state tests for the purposes of comparative accountability with the help of its partner, Data Recognition Corporation (DRC).
