The Barrow County School System uses MAP Growth to measure what
students know and measure growth over time. Students in grades 2-8
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.
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
Each time your child takes MAP Growth, the results can be viewed in the statewide
longitudinal Date System (SLDS). SLDS can be accessed from Parent Portal.
