Whats New in this fully revised second edition of MAPP?

  • MAPP2 spreadsheets now generate longitudinal data which provide a graphic presentation of individual progress over time. This process is automated so that no additional administrative burden is placed on teachers
  • Longitudinal data can be transferred from each individual record to a cohort sheet to facilitate reporting and whole school analysis of progress.
  • The MAPP Milestone Statements have been comprehensively rewritten and expanded.
  • A completely new section provides guidance on the implementation of MAPP and addresses the key issue of how to demonstrate that progress is good or better within a framework of personalised assessment.
