Logging Students in to their Test Session
MAP Scripts for Math and Reading
You can read the following instructions to students before you administer the MAP® assessments as a
guide to explain MAP testing concepts. These instructions are generalized to apply to various MAP tests
and MAP for Primary Grades (MPG) tests.
Warm-up Test: Consider having students complete the sample questions in the test warm-up. On the
Join Session page, students click Test Warm-Up.
General MAP Testing
This is not a timed test, and you will have enough time to read and answer all the questions.
Give this test your best effort.
Some questions will be easy, and others will be more difficult. You cannot get all the answers correct,
but that is okay. If you really do not know the answer to a question, try to eliminate some answer
choices, and then choose the best answer out of the remaining options. You do need to answer all
questions.
Some important things to remember as you are taking the test are:
•
•
After you sign in, please raise your hand if your computer screen does not show your name.
Before you click the Next button, you may change your mind about an answer and click on as
many answers to a question as you like. But, once you click Next or press the Enter key, you are
finished with that question. Your answer is locked into the system, and you cannot change it or
go back to a question you have already answered.
•
If you come across a question that appears to be missing answers, questions, or instructions,
raise your hand for help.
Mathematics Testing
On some (but not all) test questions, a calculator appears in the upper right corner of the question. If
the onscreen calculator appears with a test question, click on it to use it.
If you are unsure 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.
Reading and Language Usage Testing
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 the same passage is repeated with a different question, so do not skip the question
because the passage is the same.

Student Directions for the Mathematics Test
Look at your computer screen. Check to be sure that it has your name. If it does not,
please raise your hand now.
Today you will be taking a test called Measures of Academic Progress®, also called a MAP® test, which is
designed to show your mathematics knowledge. Give this test your best effort.
This test has approximately 52 questions. Use all of your knowledge and best test-taking skills to
complete the test.
You will have enough time to read and answer all the questions. Some questions will be easy; others will
be more difficult. Be sure to read the directions to each item first, then the problem, and finally, read all
of the answer choices. If you really do not know the answer to a question, use your best test-taking skills
to eliminate some answer choices. Then choose the best answer of the choices that remain. You cannot
skip questions.
There are different ways to choose your answer for each question. The best option for most students is
to use the mouse to click anywhere on the answer. If this is difficult for you to do, raise your hand and a
proctor/teacher will show you another way to select your answers.
There are two ways to move on to the next question. The best option for most students is to use the
mouse to click Go On. The other option is to press the Enter key on the keyboard.
You may click on as many answers to a question as you like, but once you click Go On or press the Enter
key, you are finished with that question. Your answer is locked into the system, and you cannot change
it.
You also cannot go back to a previous question.
Since you will be taking the Mathematics test today, I want to tell you about some tools that will assist
you.
Next to your computer are paper and a pencil. You can use them to solve problems. For some questions,
a calculator will appear on the screen. You may use the calculator, but you are not required to do so. If
you need to move the calculator, raise your hand and a proctor/teacher will show you how. If you want
to remove it from the screen, click the Hide Calculator button at the bottom of the screen. The
calculator will not always be there. It will not be there if you’re not allowed to use it.
If you are unsure about a word in a mathematics question, raise your hand and a proctor/teacher will
pronounce the word for you. We cannot tell you what the word means, and we cannot explain any
symbols.
This probably will not ever happen, but should you come across a question that appears to be missing
answers, questions, or instructions, raise your hand so we can help you.
The test will take approximately 50 minutes to complete; however, it is not timed, and
you will be given time to finish.
When you come to the end of the test, your score will be displayed on the screen. It is very important
that you do not press Enter or click any buttons. Please cover your screen by flipping down the paper on
the top of your computer and read your book silently. An adult will come over and set your station for
the next student to use while others are finishing.
If you have any concerns once the test has started, raise your hand and a proctor/teacher will come to
you.
We are not allowed to provide you with any additional information during the test other than
pronouncing a word in a question for you.
I can now reread any part of the instructions if you have questions. Are there any questions?
You may begin by clicking the Start Test button.

Student Directions for the Reading or Language Usage Test
Look at your computer screen. Check to be sure that it has your name. If it does not,
please raise your hand now.
Today you will be taking a test called Measures of Academic Progress®, also called a MAP® test, which is
designed to show your reading or language usage knowledge. Give this test your best effort.
This test has approximately 52 questions for Language Usage and approximately 42 questions for
Reading.
Use all of your knowledge and best test-taking skills to complete the test.
You will have enough time to read and answer all the questions. Some questions will be easy; others will
be more difficult. Be sure to read the directions to each item first, then the problem, and finally, read all

it.
You also cannot go back to a previous question.
Sometimes, a reading passage may be too long to fit on the screen at the same time. If that is the case,
be sure to use the scroll bar on the right-hand side of the screen to scroll down so that the whole
passage and the matching question are displayed.
Sometimes you may see the same passage repeated with different questions. This is okay.
This probably will not ever happen, but should you come across a question that appears to be missing
answers, questions, or instructions, raise your hand so we can help you.

6. Help students to login on their computers, choose their name and session ID, and get to the screen with this
message:
7. Finish giving any instructions you have to students regarding MAP testing BEFORE confirming students in
order to avoid having them start testing before you want them to. When you are finished giving any other
directions you may have, proceed to the next step.
8. When students are waiting for the proctor (you) to confirm their information, you will see the
number ‘To Be Confirmed:’ grow as more students finish logging in.
9. On your proctor computer, confirm students as they are ready. This is the part of the screen you will go back

Clicking this confirms all students with "To Be Confirmed" status.
•
Click to see additional students who have "To Be Confirmed" status.
10. Students who are confirmed should get the blue
button on their screen and will be able
to begin or resume testing.
11. If there are questions or problems, consult the help screens on the MAP proctor page or call the LMC for
assistance at 3312.
Ending a Testing Session
If you have students who do not finish testing before time is up, you can end the testing session and have them
finish later. Doing this will automatically suspend all of your students who are still testing.

5. They are then prompted to click the blue ‘OK’ button. Clicking it brings them back to the MAP login
screen.
You may reopen your saved session later on or create a new one for students who need to finish or make up a
MAP test. Check in the LMC if you have questions about a makeup schedule.
