If you have questions that need an immediate response, please contact our Partner Support team
(1-877-469-3287) and remind them that you are with the Archdiocese of Seattle and that NWEA is handling your rostering in a different way than other partners.
We have some updates to consider with the MAP tests that I wanted to forward on to you from our NWEA partners. First, I am excited to hear that NWEA has ironed out many of the kinks that existed in the Spring and Fall of 2020 to ensure both remote testing and onsite testing is a smooth process for both students and testing coordinators.
On January 5th at 3:30pm, the NWEA hosted a training for anyone who needed a review (or is learning for the first time) how to roster for the Winter Map Testing period. As a reminder, the window for rostering for the MAP Winter test begins Monday, January 4th, 2021 and ends Friday, January 15th at 3pm. Here is the link to that presentation and webinar:
