MAP Testing FAQs


How to Add a Student to your Roster:

The directions for creating a student profile are here: Creating a Student Profile [] [].

The directions describe the need for information that meets two different requirements – Required to complete the student enrollment and required for Reporting.  I would just view them as all required.

The information you need is:

  • Student First and Last Name
  • Student ID
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Grade
  • Ethnicity
  • School
  • Class or Classes


The direct link to creating a student profile are here: Creating a Student Profile [].

To go to the Help Center, simply click on the word Help in the top right side of your MAP Screen.

From there one can find help by Searching, choosing a topic from the dropdown menus, or by following other links.
