MAP Recommended Practice is a prototype: we are testing on Khan Academy new functionality which allows teachers to enter their students’ NWEA MAP Test scores (students may also enter their own scores) in order for the student to receive a customized playlist of math skills, based on their test results.
While this functionality is new on Khan Academy, the skills playlists have been developed over several years in close collaboration with NWEA. Until now, these recommended playlists have been made available to teachers via a pdf download from NWEA’s website. This prototype attempts to streamline and facilitate that process for teachers.
(Please note that this is a very early prototype to automate the pdf playlist functionality. We invite you to take note of what additional features would help you and your students and please respond to our surveys in November and February!)
Who should use MAP Recommended Practice?
Students who take the NWEA MAP Test, and their teachers.
Do I have to already know how to use Khan Academy in order to use the prototype in my classroom?
No. If today is your first time visiting Khan Academy, welcome! Please review the MAP Recommended Practice instructions and you’ll be up and running, ready to use the prototype in just a few minutes.
Do I need a Khan Academy account to use the prototype?
Yes. In order to input your students’ scores, and monitor their progress on their recommended playlists, you will need to create an account, create a class, and add your students to your class. You can find more information about this process in our MAP Recommended Practice instructions.
