Abstract: The Department of Education’s Institute for Education Sciences has commissioned this evaluation as a response to the current need for experimental research about the impacts of formative assessment on student achievement and teacher practice. This project will assess the efficacy of the Northwest Evaluation PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60323 Association’s program entitled ‘‘Measuring Academic Progress’’ or MAP by looking at the impact on teacher practice and student achievement. The MAP intervention combines theory and research in two areas that have gained considerable attention in recent years: (1) Formative assessment: (2) and differentiated instruction. MAP tests and training are currently in place in more than 10% of K–12 school districts nationwide (just over 2,000 districts participate among the approximately 17,500 districts). Despite its popularity, the effectiveness of the MAP and its training have not been established to date. Furthermore, the relative ubiquity of its current use, along with a projected growth in the number of schools investing in MAP and its associated training, makes it a prime candidate for this type of study.
