Using NWEA™ with Imagine Math PreK-2

If your organization has set up NWEA to share MAP Growth Assessment scores with Imagine Learning, Imagine Math PreK-2 places your students in their correct learning pathway in the program based upon domain-specific MAP RIT score ranges that have been mapped to Imagine Math PreK-2 instructional content.

Imagine Math PreK-2 uses the student's most recent domain-specific NWEA MAP Growth Assessment RIT scores (as far back as last semester quantified as 6 months) to automatically place students in the appropriate Imagine Math PreK-2 content. Once a student is placed in their pathway, they receive targeted math instruction to remediate any skill gaps identified by the NWEA MAP Growth Assessment. 

If students have not taken the NWEA MAP Growth Assessment within the last 6 months, students will receive an introductory lesson on program navigation and then start on the first Imagine Math PreK-2 lesson for their assigned (rostered) grade level. This allows students to begin using Imagine Math PreK-2 with no access barriers.  Once students finish the Growth Assessment and Imagine Learning receives the scores from NWEA (within 1 to 2 business days), student pathways will be adjusted if necessary. 

 Note

Imagine Math PreK-2 does not support the creation of custom pathways. Therefore, unlike in Imagine Math 3+, there are no additional domain-specific RIT pathways to supplement or replace the default instructional grade-level pathway. Imagine Math PreK-2 students only have one assigned pathway at a time.  In reports, this will be called the PreK-2 Pathway.
 

Students using the NWEA MAP auto-integration are still listed in the Benchmark report and the Benchmark Roster within Imagine Math PreK-2. However, NWEA MAP Growth Assessment scores do not display directly in Imagine Math PreK-2.  To view the scores, log in to NWEA from within Imagine Math PreK-2 as instructed below.

To access students' NWEA MAP Growth Assessment Scores:

  1. Log in to Imagine Math.

     Note

    If your NWEA integration has been established, you will see the NWEA label to the right of your school name on the dashboard. If you do not see this, please contact Imagine Learning. 

  2. Click the Go to NWEA button in the Benchmark section of your dashboard.

     Note

    Organizations with some grade levels using NWEA and other grade levels using the Imagine Math Benchmark will have a slightly different Benchmark section than shown above, which is for NWEA-only users. If your organization uses both assessment types, look for the link to NWEA at the top of the Benchmark section rather than the bottom.

  3. The system will take you to the NWEA login screen. Log in there using your NWEA password and credentials, which may be different from your Imagine Math credentials.
