The Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) is a statewide testing program in reading and mathematics (with other subject areas tested on a sampling basis). The MEAP tests are administered every fall to all fourth, seventh, and tenth graders. This Handbook was developed to assist educators in analyzing, using, and reporting MEAP test results. It includes a brief overview of the program and description of the MEAP tests, suggested methods, techniques, and strategies for using the results, and a discussion of the appropriate uses of MEAP test results. Also provided is an illustrated explanation of how to read each of the report forms, and explanation of the Proportions Report (Appendix A). The objectives tested, with example test items and a list of item numbers measuring each objective, can be found in Appendix B and Appendix C. Appendix D shows a brochure which has been prepared to describe to a variety of audiences various principles which are highly related to student achievement. A flyer which can be used to help explain the test results to individual students and parents is provided in Appendix E. "Special Notes for Adult Educators" are provided in Appendix F. A list of additional resources can be found in Appendix G. (BW)
