MAP Test taking strategies:

  • Gifted students are used to being the first done on regular paper-pencil test; with MAP they are usually last; it’s okay to be last on this, in fact we encourage gifted students to be the last ones finished.
  • Gifted students are used to being able to skip a hard problem and go back over the problem later; with MAP this is not possible, however the gifted student will still carry this question in their head making it difficult to work on the problem at hand.
  • Gifted students are not used to being challenged on tests and when they face hard questions the reaction may be to STOP or be frustrated.
  • Students at the high end of MAP testing will NOT have as large of gains on consecutive tests.
