This workshop teaches content, strategies, and self-assessment tips to ensure students are confident in taking the NWEA MAP and reach their full potential on test day. This workshop covers test-taking strategies and subject-specific content needed for the NWEA MAP test, which counts for one-third of the Chicago Public Schools Selective Enrollment High School application score.
The course is geared toward 7th graders who attend CPS or charter schools and will take the MAP test in May/June to qualify for the Selective Enrollment exam in 8th grade. Private and Catholic school students are also welcome to register, but they will likely not take their qualifying MAP test until fall of their 8th grade year. We recommend non-CPS students take our Ultimate 8th Grade Test Prep Workshop to prepare for the fall MAP test dates as well as other high school admissions exams. Look here for more information about the application process for Chicago-area high schools.
