Student Directions Script:
You can read the following bolded instructions to students before you administer the MAP assessment as a guide to explain what to expect.
For all students: Give your best effort on this test. It is a chance to show how much you know. Your teacher can use it to choose what you are ready to learn next. This is not a timed test, so it’s important to take your time to understand each question before answering. Some questions will be easy, and others will be more difficult. It’s okay not to know all of the answers. If you are not sure how to answer a question, then ask yourself which answers are definitely wrong, and choose from the other answers. Read every question and try your best.
Before you finish a question, you may change your mind and pick a different answer. But, once you move to the next question, your answer is locked, and you cannot go back to the question you have already answered.
I’m here to help if there is a problem with the test. If something is missing or if the test tells you to slow down, then raise your hand.
For Math: On some (but not all) test questions, a calculator tool appears at the top. You can click the calculator picture to open an on-screen calculator that helps you answer the question.
If you are not sure about a word in a question, raise your hand for help. I can pronounce the word for you, but I cannot tell you what the word means or explain any math symbols.
For Reading or Language Usage: If a reading passage is too long to fit on the screen, use the scroll bar on the right side of the passage to scroll down and display the rest of the passage and questions about it.
Sometimes a passage appears again and again but look carefully, because you will see different questions for the same passage.
