MobyMax provides seamless integration with NWEA MAP Growth results for districts to determine students' starting points in our Math and Language subject modules. This feature is especially useful for schools and districts that already use MAP Growth tests. This integration saves time and ensures a personalized learning experience for students.

To enable this integration, administrators need to share the data with MobyMax from an NWEA administrator account. Once the data is shared, students' starting points will be set in MobyMax, and teachers can customize their curriculum accordingly.

Here's how our integration process works in a nutshell: 

  1. Your school or district shares MAP test results with us in NWEA. 
  2. We are notified that your district has shared data with us (It typically takes about 24 hours before data is visible on our side after you have shared).
  3. We check your rosters to make sure that we can match students in MobyMax with students in NWEA. In order to match, a student's Student ID in MobyMax must match the "Student ID" in NWEA. At that point, a Moby Integrations Expert will reach out to you to discuss whether rosters need to be updated. 
  4. Once rosters are prepared, we connect MobyMax and your district's data in our system. 

To avoid any confusion, it's recommended to only share NWEA data for schools where you want MAP results synced to MobyMax. If data is shared for the entire district, our sync will look for matches on any shared students and sync results.

How does MobyMax use MAP Growth results?

Our sync process with MAP test scores is designed to utilize student results as a basis for a student's learning journey in MobyMax. If a student has not previously worked in a subject module, the MAP Growth results will be utilized to set their starting point, and they will not need to take a placement test.

After syncing the results with your students, they can log in to their MobyMax accounts and select either the "Mathematics" or "Language" button to start learning with skills that match their NWEA MAP results. Our integration supports valid results from the following two MAP Growth tests:

  • MAP Growth: Language
  • MAP Growth: Math

Note: In the event that a student has already begun working in Moby Math or Language and their MAP Growth results are synced, they will not be automatically restarted in the subject module. However, teachers have the ability to manually restart their students in Math or Language so that the students can begin at the appropriate starting point based on their MAP results.

Does MobyMax sync new MAP Growth results automatically?

Our sync with NWEA was designed to set the starting point in our Moby Math and Language modules using results from the MAP Growth tests. Once the initial NWEA setup has been completed, Administrators will need to reach out to Moby to manually run a fresh sync for new test results. We recommend integrating your NWEA MAP results with us at the beginning of each year to avoid the need to restart any students after they have progress data.

It is possible to sync new MAP Growth results later in the year, but it will require restarting students in the MobyMax Math or Language subjects so that the sync can set a new starting point for them. This means the existing progress data would be reset so that the new baseline can be created.
