Linking the New York State NYSTP Assessments to NWEA MAP Tests
Northwest Evaluation Association
Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) is committed to providing partners with useful tools to help make inferences from the Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) interim assessment scores. Recently, NWEA completed a concordance study to connect the scales of the New York State Testing Program (NYSTP) reading and math with those of the MAP Reading and MAP for Mathematics assessments. This report presents the 3rd through 8th grade cut scores on MAP reading and mathematics scales that correspond to the benchmarks on the NYSTP reading and math tests. Information about the consistency rate of classification based on the estimated MAP cut scores is also provided, along with a series of tables that predict the probability of receiving a Level 3 (i.e.,"Proficient") or higher performance designation on the NYSTP assessments, based on the observed MAP scores taken during the same school year. A detailed description of the data and analysis method used in this study is provided in the Appendix.
