The Barrow County School System recently adopted MAP Growth.

                                              Students in grades 2-8 will take MAP Growth three times a year:

                                              beginning, middle, and end.

 

 

 

 


How it Works

MAP Growth is a computer-adaptive assessment. If your child answers a question
correctly, the next question is more challenging. If a question is answered incorrectly,
the next question is easier. This format challenges top performers without overwhelming

students whose skill are below grade level.

 

Results

MAP Growth measures growth over time, allowing you to track your child’s progress

throughout the school year and across multiple years. After each MAP Growth administration,

results are delivered in the form of a RIT score that reflects academic knowledge, skills, and

abilities. Think of this score like marking height on a growth chart. You can tell how tall your

child is at various points in time and how much they have grown between one stage and
another.
