MDE Delivers Student MEAP Results to Schools
Thursday, January 05, 2012
School districts in Michigan received their fall 2011 MEAP student-level results last December, allowing teachers to review and direct individualized focus to students.
While statewide MEAP results will not be released until early this year, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) returned this student-level data back to classrooms within two months—the third consecutive year that schools have received student-level data before their winter break.
“Having these data in their hands allows teachers to pinpoint what their students know and don’t know, and where each student needs additional help in learning,” said state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mike Flanagan.
The department offers these files to local schools as an early look at the summary and item analysis data before publicly releasing MEAP results. The student data files are provided to school and district personnel ahead of the paper and pdf-based reports to allow schools and districts access to student data at the earliest opportunity.
Schools are not permitted to share any school- or district-level results with the community or other external parties until statewide testing results are released to the public.
A date for the public release of the assessment data will be scheduled by the Michigan Department of Education after all MEAP reports have been finalized.
