NWEA/Maps testing will be starting very soon. We want to make sure everyone is comfortable with administering the tests.
We had a classroom pilot the test to make sure we could address some of the bumps you might go through during this process. Zoe Parrish and Krystle Demas were so kind to create a little cheat sheet that will help many of you when attempting to set up your classes and tests. During the pilot we experienced a hiccup and were able to find a solution. This is also posted in their directions. Please do not forget to use the NWEA booklet for help.
Dr. Geyer and I pulled these guides from the Maps Resources page. You have access to them, but I wanted to share them here just in case.

*One note in Maps, a Proctor is the teacher giving the test. This is different than how we use the term “proctor” when administering the SOL tests.
