Learn how to raise your students NWEA Math test scores using RIT leveled Math vocabulary!  Get higher scores on the NWEA MAP Math Test in as few as 20 days! Students that study, model, and learn the Tier 3 Academic Math Vocabulary will score up to 20 or even 30 points higher than students that are not exposed to the Math vocabulary. The NWEA publish the vocabulary for anyone to use and study, but they are now making the Math, ELA, Reading and Science available only for districts and schools that are using the NWEA testing resources. The links below are still usable without having to login to the NWEA web site!

Students must also master the Tier 2 Academic Testing Vocabulary to understand what the test questions are asking. Words like “accurately” are examples of Tier 2 words that can get in students way when talking test, if they are not sure of their meaning.

The NWEA has a RIT Level MATH Sample Test that that is very helpful.
