The highest possible reading test score on the Measures of Academic Progress for an eighth grader is 265. In 2011, the mean end-of-the-year score for the MAP was 222.4 for eighth graders, according to Miller Junior High School.

The MAP Tests are administered to students from kindergarten to the 11th grade to track their progress throughout the year. Ideally, tested skills in all areas, including reading, science and mathematics, improve throughout the year. The test is administered once at the beginning of the school year, once in the middle and once at the end of the school year. The median scores increase with both grade level and the time of year. The highest possible score for all areas is 265, but that would require a perfect answer for every question.
