Explanation of the indicator:
The MEAP (Michigan Educational Assessment Program) test measures student achievement in math, reading, science, social studies, and writing. The MEAP test is administered each fall to students in grades 3 through 9.
The test measures whether students are meeting the State's grade-level expectations. In some cases, County-level data are not available from the same data source used by the State. In other cases, County-level data are not available for the same time frame used by the State. In these instances, data sources and time frames were selected that most closely match those of the State. Due to this difference, it must be noted that comparisons may not be completely equivalent in all cases. Michigan's data source is the Michigan Department of Education, Michigan Educational Assessment Program.
