MAP testing devices. We have had a few scholars with devices that did not meet the MAP testing requirements. Please have your scholar to go to test.mapnwea.org to make sure their device is compatible. Some of the frequent issues were pop up blockers, resolution and system updates.

This includes but not limited to, music, television, and other people in the room. We do understand it is not always possible to have the perfect setting but minimal distractions are appreciated.
