Northwest Evaluation Association
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) Science for use with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) assessments are available for the 2016-17 school year. These new assessments measure student growth toward understanding of the multidimensional NGSS performance expectations. This report presents MAP Science for use with NGSS by presenting and answer the following questions: (1) What are the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)?; (2) What is the purpose of MAP Science for use with NGSS assessments?; (3) How are the items in MAP Science for NGSS aligned to the dimensions of NGSS?; (4) How do multidimensional items compare to single dimensional items?; (5) How are the MAP Science for use with NGSS blueprints different from older MAP for Science blueprints?; (6) Is MAP Science for use with NGSS for grades 6-8 useful for high school students?; (7) How will the Learning Continuum reports reflect multidimensional standards?; (8) How does the new assessment affect the growth and status norms?; (9) What does engineering design look like in the assessments?; (10) How does NWEA ensure MAP Science for use with NGSS item pools provide a wide range of content complexity and cognitive rigor?; and (11) Is the current MAP for Science still available?
