Michigan students' MEAP results will be released Monday morning for students in Dearborn and in all public schools across the state.
The scores were scheduled to be released at 10 a.m.
The Michigan Education Assessment Program exam assesses students in grades 3 through 9:
- Reading and math are tested in grades 3 through 8;
- Writing is tested in grades 4 and 7
- Science is tested in grades 5 and 8;
- Social studies is tested in grades 6 and 9.
The annual test is designed to show students' proficiency in career- and college-ready materials. The MEAP is administered by the Department of Education, which is releasing the data on Monday.
The MEAP as a standard of measuring student achievement is on its way out; beginning in the 2014-15 school year, students will be given an online exam to test their knowledge of core subjects. (Read: Just the Facts: New Test to Replace MEAP.)
Last year, Dearborn students showed overall improvement in their MEAP proficiency levels from the year prior. However, while Dearborn's percentages fell at or above state averages for proficiency in math and writing, they came in below state averages in reading and social studies.
Here's a look at last year's results.
Check back with Dearborn Patch after 10 a.m. today, when the scores are officially released.
