# Commitment #2: Students Learn 2x

October 16, 2022

**What is 2x learning? **While most schools promise to teach one grade level’s worth of content in a school year, Alpha promises more. Our second commitment to Alpha families is their students will learn 2x while at Alpha. Our commitment to 2x Learning means students will achieve twice their predicted RIT growth year over year on the MAP test.

**How does Alpha measure 2x learning? **Three times a year, Alpha students take an interactive and adaptive assessment for measuring academic achievement and growth called the MAP test. Students earn a RIT score for each subject area they test in. From that score, MAP shows how many points the student will grow in that subject, in a given year.
