Imagine Math Grade 3+ can use NWEA MAP Growth Assessment scores to place students in Imagine Math Grade 3+ if your organization has set up NWEA to share assessment scores with Imaging Learning. Imagine Math Grade 3+ uses the student's most recent NWEA MAP Growth Assessment scores (as far back as last semester - quantified as 6 months) to identify and automatically assign the appropriate Imagine Math Grade 3+ grade level pathway to the student. Once a student is placed in the appropriate Imagine Math Grade 3+ pathway, they receive targeted math instruction to remediate any skill gaps identified by the NWEA MAP Growth Assessment.

**Educators** can assign supplemental pathways (including NWEA domain-specific pathways) to their students to provide additional targeted math instruction beyond the grade level pathways.

After students complete the next scheduled NWEA MAP Growth Assessment, Imagine Math Grade 3+ may adjust the student's grade level pathway if necessary. If a student's NWEA MAP Growth Assessment results require at least one grade level (+/-) change to a student's Instructional Area RIT score, Imagine Math Grade 3+ will automatically adjust the student's grade level pathways.

If a student has **not** taken the NWEA MAP Growth Assessment, they will start on the first Imagine Math Grade 3+ lesson in the grade level pathway for their assigned grade level.
