  • Practice test for Primary Grades:
    Before you administer the MAP for Primary Grades Assessment, students will need to experience a practice test warm-up.  This is best done in a lab so every student will have an opportunity to use the mouse to navigate and choose answers in the program:

    Test Warm-Up for MAP for Primary Grades Assessment (from NWEA)

  • Optional "Mouse" Practice: Ensure all your students are comfortable using a computer mouse.  Some classes have volunteer parents spend time with students on the Starfall website or other sites to increase student confidence in using the mouse.
