Mississippi Assessment Program (MAP) Information

MAP is a Mississippi-developed test to measure student mastery of the Mississippi College and Career Ready Standards, which are the set of learning goals that guide teaching and learning in Mississippi classrooms.
To learn more about MAP, please follow this link.
