AASSA Educators’ Conference 2012



 "MAP Users Group"



Presenters Names: Stacy Schneider & Matt Judd

School/Organization:  NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association)

Presenter Contact Info--Email:                                                               




Presentation Description:  

Taking on the NWEA MAP can be a daunting task for classroom teachers and administrators who are starved for time and resources.Through our session, we'll take you through the MAP process from the start all the way to the finish. We'll examine many different topics ranging from: synthesizing MAP data, grouping, differentiated instruction, goal setting, helping ESL learners, and show you many other ways MAP can be used to bolster your classroom practice.

Once you've attended our session, we expect attendees to:

  1. Understand where to go once you have MAP results
  2. Have multiple ideas which can be immediately implemented into the curriculum
  3. Know how to involve school stakeholders in the MAP assessment process

We have planned this session for a range of participants. If you are new to MAP, feel free to join as you will take something away from our session. If you are looking for better ways to implement MAP into your classroom, this is a good place to start. If you have used MAP extensively, we'd love to have you join and share your expertise. We recommend the session for classroom teachers, grades K - 8 (or those involved with Math and LA) and administrators looking to gain an edge for their staff.


***If you plan on attending, you will need a copy of your current Math and Language Arts Curriculum guides as you will be using it to help you implement new strategies. It would also be helpful to bring your most current MAP Teacher Report to use as a tool for implementing new strategies your own class.


Date: Wednesday, March 14 & Thursday, March 15, 2012
