Glossary of Tests

NWEA - MAP

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments are administered twice annually to all students in grades K-8 in Math and Reading. These assessments are used to monitor student achievement and growth as compared to student-alike groups nationwide.

ACCESS

ACCESS is an English language proficiency assessment based on the Minnesota Standards for English Language Development. This is a state required English Language Proficiency assessment for all students identified as English Learners in grades K-12. There are four language domains assessed in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Each year, MDE sends paper Individual Student Reports (ISR) to the school district. Once received in the district, ISRs will be distributed during August Back-to-school events or during fall conferences. RPS families can also view their child’s ACCESS scores in Skyward Family Access.
