Mandatory Assessment, Advising and Placement (MAAP)

What is MAAP?

MAAP is the acronym commonly used at Madison Area Technical College for our Mandatory Assessment, Advising and Placement policy. MAAP is an integrated process involving the following:

  • Mandatory assessment: Students enrolling in an identified, entry-level course will have an assessment (COMPASS test) of the basic skills necessary to be successful in that course.
  • Mandatory advising: Students enrolling in an identified, entry-level course will receive advising regarding their assessment results and appropriate placement.
  • Mandatory placement: Students enrolling in an identified, entry-level course will be placed into the course for which they are academically prepared.
