MREA members can now take advantage of MAP Growth, MAP Reading Fluency, and MAP Accelerator licenses at no cost from Northwest Evaluation Association. NWEA is offering free licenses to a limited number of districts to support schools in building strong back-to-school restart plans for Fall. The offer is in response to COVID-19 school closures and has been extended to MREA to help members get quality data to assess and meet student learning  needs.

Putting accurate student data and personalized learning tools in educators’ hands allows educators to customize instruction, identify appropriate curricular supports, and ultimately close learning gaps more quickly. To learn how to obtain free licenses for Fall testing, contact Amy Hansen-Bhutta at: or 218-316-0385. Dr. Hansen-Bhutta can also help districts explore ways to reduce testing costs later in the school year.
