Last Friday, the state released the results of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program, better known as the MEAP. The statewide tests were administered to Michigan students in grades 3-9 last fall for the final time, as the state will move to an online assessment, which is likely to be more aligned with the Common Core standards in the spring of 2015.

Sarah Lenhoff, the director of policy and research for the Education Trust – Midwest, breaks down some of the numbers and outlines how the new test will work.
