Learning A-Z creates useful, high-quality resources that correlate to state and international curriculum standards, popular curricula and reading series, and major assessments. Raz-Plus and Reading A-Z already provide correlations to Common Core, U.S. State Standards, Language Proficiency Standards, the International Baccalaureate Curriculum, EngageNY, and a host of basal reading series.
Now, Learning A-Z continues its commitment to saving teachers time and making it easier to find just-right literacy resources for all students with new Raz-Plus and Reading A-Z correlations to Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) Measures of Academic Progress ® (MAP®) and MAP for Primary Grades® (MPG® ) assessments. If your school or district administers NWEA growth assessments two to three times per year, Raz-Plus and Reading A-Z have the resources you need to deliver differentiated instruction that addresses students’ identified skill gaps.
Many Reading A-Z and Raz-Plus leveled resources are designed to address the foundational and higher-order thinking skills that will be evaluated by the MAP and MPG assessments, such as analyzing informational texts, vocabulary acquisition, and phonics and word recognition. The resources are built around these and many other skills, making it easier for you to deliver instruction targeting the skills addressed in the NWEA’s Learning Continuum while giving students the practice they need to perform their best on the MAP and MPG assessments.
After your students have taken the MAP or MPG growth assessment, Raz-Plus and Reading A-Z provide correlated resources by RIT Range that you can use to inform future instruction in skills that students need to practice. These downloadable PDFs, found in our Curricula and Assessments correlations, outline the specific resources that address the MPG assessments goals for Foundational Skills, Language and Writing, Literature and Informational texts, Vocabulary Use and Functions. The correlations also include resources that address the MAP assessment goals for grades 2–5: Informational Text, Literature, and Vocabulary Acquisition and Use. With our new MPG and MAP correlations, you can save time finding resources that address your students’ post-assessment learning needs.
Learning A-Z’s new partnership with NWEA empowers teachers to maximize their impact in the classroom with standards-aligned resources that differentiate instruction in reading and language arts.
