In this online training available 24/7, you will learn how to accurately administer both the reading and mathematics assessments of the Massachusetts Adult Proficiency Test - College and Career Readiness (MAPT-CCR) so that students’ learning gains are reported accurately.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Practitioners from ACLS-funded programs who require training to accurately administer both the reading and mathematics MAPT-CCR assessments

This seven-module online training takes approximately one hour to complete and replaces the face-to-face version of the MAPT-CCR Administration Training.

  • Module 2: The Components of the MAPT-CCR
  • Module 3: Getting Ready with the OWL System and the MAPT-CCR
  • Module 4: Student Login Steps
  • Module 5: Sample Questions and Practice Tests
  • Module 6: Administration of the MAPT-CCR for Reading and the MAPT-CCR for Math

When you have completed all modules, you will be certified to administer the MAPT-CCR, and a confirmation page will load. You will also receive an email confirmation that you have completed the training, which you can keep for your records and forward to your program director as needed. ACLS and the Center for Educational Assessment at UMass-Amherst will automatically receive notification that you completed the training, so you will not need to contact either organization.
