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
