NWEA Map Training

In November, the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) will be offering a series of professional development workshops around the state from their MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Foundation series. The workshops will help educators gain strategies for using MAP reports to engage in high-impact goal setting, and connecting MAP data to a variety of needs — including how to use the data to support the transition to more rigorous state standards like the Common Core. The workshops will also address the use of differentiated instruction to meet the needs of students through the use of flexible groupings and instructional ladders.
