Dear Academic Approach Families & Colleagues:  

We know many elementary and middle school students take the NWEA-MAP or other online tests. To support their preparation, we’ve developed an online practice test to help students get more comfortable testing in an online setting. 

Our High School Entrance Exam Online Practice Test includes an overview of content commonly seen at the middle school level and is aligned to the skills assessed on the NWEA-MAP test. It’s not a practice MAP test—it’s an opportunity for students to practice online testing (including using an online calculator and reading online) in a low-stakes scenario. It also provides students and instructors with detailed information on student skills strengths and gaps.  

In combination with our practice tests for the various high school entrance exams, this practice serves as great support in helping middle school students prepare for online testing. Below are some snapshots from the test: 


We’re excited to continue to share new resources with our students, especially as we anticipate a future increase in both online and at-home assessments.

Be well,
Matthew Pietrafetta, Ph.D., Founder & CEO
