A Study of the Alignment of the NWEA RIT Scale with the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) Testing Program, April 2014
Graduation Trends in MN
High Schools
• The goal of the Minnesota Department of
Education is to reduce the academic
achievement gap and to make sure all
students graduate from high school regardless
of their background.
• In 2014, 81.2 percent of Minnesota students
graduated from high school, up from 79.8
percent in 2013. In addition, every student
group showed an increase from the previous
year.
• Since 2011, students have shown increases in
graduation rates every single year. This year’s
data moved Minnesota closer to a statewide
goal of having a 90 percent graduation rate by
2020.
Linking Studies
NWEA completed two “College Readiness” studies:
1. Linking Study between MAP and the Explore, Plan and ACT
Assessments (2011) Grades 8, 10 and 11
2. Robert Theaker & Clay Johnson study between MAP and ACT
- took linking study & extended the data down to grade 5
(2012)
Method:
• Active NWEA districts that use EXPLORE, PLAN, and ACT were
recruited.
• ACT data was matched to corresponding MAP data at the
individual level
• Linking Study had 108,000 matched pairs of scores from 26,000
students from 140 schools in 3 states.
• Theaker & Johnson used only ACT so it was a smaller study
Results
The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are the minimum ACT college
readiness assessment scores required for students to have a high probability
of success in credit-bearing college courses.
11th grade student has a MAP cut score of 236 in the fall on the Reading assessment,
then that means they are in 77% for normative percentile rank.
That gives them a 50% probability of achieving a 21 on the ACT Reading in the spring.
See Probability Table to get higher than 50%.
Results
Note: In September 2013 ACT raised the benchmarks for the Reading College
Readiness Test to 16 for Explore (taken in eighth) 18 for Plan, and 22 for ACT.
11th grade student has a MAP cut score of 255 in the fall on the Math assessment,
then that means they are in 83% for normative percentile rank.
Meaning: if you got a 255 in fall in math, then you are projected to get 22 on ACT.

The MAP cut scores shown in these tables are the minimum estimated scores. Meeting the
minimum MAP cut score corresponds to a 50% probability of achieving that benchmark.
The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are the minimum ACT college readiness assessment
scores required for students to have a high probability of success in credit-bearing college
courses. In addition to the benchmarks for the ACT, there are corresponding benchmarks for ACT
Explore taken in eighth, and ACT Plan taken in tenth grade, to gauge student progress in
becoming ready for college.
Note: In September 2013 ACT raised the benchmarks for the Reading College Readiness Test to 16
for Explore (taken in eighth) 18 for Plan, and 22 for ACT.

Lexiles
• Research collaborated with MetaMetrics (developers of the Lexile©)
to develop an algorithm to calculate the Lexile© score and range
from the RIT scale.
• Our MAP Reading Reports show Lexile Score - for free!
• NWEA provides a 150 point Lexile® range with the actual "Lexile®
score" being 100 points from the low number and 50 points from the
high number. The first 100 points of the range is the student's
independent reading range (with 75% comprehension). The top 50
points represent the student's instructional range.
• MAP Lexile information is great for those high students that are only
growing a RIT point or two, because the Lexile number will continue
to grow and grow.
• Lexile score can help you look at where you want to go to college
and what you want to study.
An average Lexile
reading level for
high school
graduate is around
1000.
An average college
freshman Lexile
reading level is
around 1250.
