  2. Currently, only proctors monitoring active test sessions can see students' progress during the tests. It would be really helpful if school coordinators could directly access and view students' progress in all active sessions without having to rely on each proctor to provide updates or download testing progress files. This would greatly simplify test management and reduce the burden on proctors, especially when monitoring multiple students. Thanks!

  3. Please end the 24-hour wait and make results available instantly. Other companies have this as standard. Ready when a student finishes.

    Please also look into the design of your website. It is hardly user-friendly and clunky to navigate and easy to get lost in.

    How it's organized feels more like a software engineer designed it versus a teacher with experience and a web designer. It could use a redesign from the ground up.

  4. If you are having issues with native resolution errors in your NWEA testing window, try navigating to: Chrome>Settings>Device>Select the appropriateOU>Select - "Allow users to overwrite predefined display settings (recommended)">Change both "Custom external" and "Custom internal" to 95% or whatever percentage appropriately sizes your window without error.

    You may need to reboot your Chromebook for the settings to update.

  5. Since accommodations can only be assigned to multiple students who are in the same grade level, the addition of grade on the Test Session screen would save a lot of time when trying to assign accommodations to multiple students at once.

  6. Currently a student's testing accommodations have to be entered for each testing session. Accommodations also have to be re-entered within the same testing session if the student is assigned one test, (say the reading test), finishes the test, and then is assigned a different test (the Math test). We have so many students with accommodations in our system that it is easy to miss assigning their accommodations because we have to do and redo it so many times.

    The desired system would allow an admin or SpEd staff (or anyone) to go into the system and assign accommodations directly to…

  7. Improve accessibility features for students with visual impairments. The built in magnification tool does not adequately or efficiently zoom in at this time. The test also does not work seamlessly with a Chromebook's built in accessibility features, such as the magnification feature.

  8. I've had a few schools reach out and let me know that they accidentally terminated a test. One thing that I think would be helpful was if the "Are You Sure You Want to Terminate" box was a different color/looked different/etc than the "Are You Sure You Want to Suspend" box. I think a lot of people aren't reading the entire box and are assuming they are on the Suspend button instead of the Terminate button.

  9. They should not get kicked off the test because they are a slower reader (there should be no time limit). I was informed they give them plenty of time before they kick them off. Whatever that limit is, it is not enough. I watched two students scrolling through and reading it and both got kicked off. It is not enough time. There should be no time limit at all. If there is, then it is a timed test. I was told MAP is not a timed test.

  10. As an experienced teacher who has seen the MAP tests in action for several years, I feel that the test is too long for students. MAP-R especially requires a serious amount of reading stamina for 4th and 5th grade students. I saw that you measure growth in 3 areas on the test. I recommend that you shorten the test to 30 questions (10 questions in each area). This would be a better measure of students reading ability and comprehension because students wouldn't get as tired and just give up.

  11. Even a printable version of the test for translation would be beneficial in determining what a student already knows and can do.

  12. Currently, if a session is active, and the teacher or proctor has to leave for any reason during the session. The only way to continue to administer/monitor the session (and resolve potential student issues) is to have the teacher who started the session, end and save it before leaving. Then have the proctor or teacher who is replacing the teacher login to their account and resume the session. This is costly when time is limited, and interrupts a test in progress. It would be very helpful if district and school proctors could simply login, find the session in progress, and…

  13. Can we have a feature to keep student accommodations for the school year? TIDE (state testing) and other platforms have this feature.

    Adding accommodations each BOY,MOY and EOY to 4 tests per 3 grade levels, 3 times a year is tedious and time consuming.

    6th- 4 tests, 7th- 4 tests, 8th grade 4 tests

    4 x 3 = 12 tests

    12 tests x BOY, MOY, EOY = 36 tests total

    36 tests total x 400 students with accommodations= 14, 400 times of accommodations inputted

    Also, can the Reading and Language test be combined?

  14. We are teaching them that a number and a letter right next to each other means multiplication. For example, image.png,and they have to solve for X. But they way they are writing on MAP is
    image.png image.png, meaning times X. It is very confusing to the kids because they already know it's multiplication and we no longer use the X for multiplication because it is a variable. Is there a place for administrators to make suggestions for improvements to the MAP/NWEA testing?? For our kids, it's ilke there is an extra "X" in the problem. (From MS Math teachers)

  16. When setting up a test session, TTS should be automatically assigned to those students who have it as an identified need on an IEP, 504 or ELL plan. TTS should be connected to a student account and not a Test Session.

  18. The format for Kindergarten MAP can be challenging for early learners' attention span, directions need to be clear and consistent by the program. There are way too many buttons to be pressing in all sorts of order, that the students do not understand. Simplify to get better results and true data.

  19. When ending a test session, please make the Save and Exit button and Delete Session button different colors!! They are the same color and size and it's only a matter of time before someone deletes a session by accident.

  20. Our students did a writing workshop that taught them how to highlight different information using different colors. Example...Setting (yellow), time (blue), action (green), reaction (red), etc. On the STAR test, they do allow different colors for the highlighter. It would be nice if all things were aligned for the students sake.
