How does it work?

MAP-Works uses a combination of:

  • Admissions data (high school GPA, ACT/SAT scores)
  • Institutional data (graduation rates, average GPA)
  • A series of individualized student surveys taken at pivotal times throughout each semester that concentrate on:
    • Learning (expectations and past earned grades, study skills and maximization of those skills) 
    • Connections (student activities and residence hall life)
    • Making healthy choices (time management, eating healthy)
    • Self-knowledge (academic abilities and self management)

MAP-Works provides student participants with a personalized online or printable (PDF) report. Each report helps the student understand their personal strengths and weaknesses. It also details pertinent campus resources as well as benchmarking results to show participants how their peers are adapting to campus life.
