- The MAP (Measures of Academic
Progress) test is a computer-adaptive test. A test is uniquely created
for each student based on how he or she responds to question. If a
student responds correctly the next question will be a little harder,
or, a little easier if the student responded incorrectly.
students are measured on a single, continuous scale, called a RIT
scale, and the score is reported in RIT points or RITs.
questions come from a huge bank of questions with each corresponding in
difficulty to a particular RIT score. Because a question with a RIT
level of 215 is more difficult, or represents a higher level of
learning or skill level, than a question from a RIT level of 214, it is
possible to measure growth over time.
