The Michigan Department of Education is set to release its fall 2012 Michigan Educational Assessment Program test scores at 10 a.m. today.
Check back later for a full wrap-up of how Wyandotte students fared. (Get the results here.)
The MEAP is given once a year to students in grades 3 through 9. Reading and mathematics are tested in grades 3 through 8, writing is tested in grades 4 and 7, science is tested in grades 5 and 8, and social studies are tested in grades 6 and 9.
All MEAP scores are divided into four performance levels: Not Proficient, Partially Proficient, Proficient, and Advanced. Students who place in either the Proficient or Advanced levels are considered to have "met or exceeded" standards (are “proficient”) in that subject. Michigan students are tested every October on knowledge and skills learned through the end of the previous year.
Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, students throughout Michigan will be given an online exam to test their knowledge of core subjects. This new test will replace the Michigan Merit Exam and the MEAP in all subjects except social science and science.
