The State Summary of Results presents a compilation of the scores of Michigan's fourth and seventh grade students who participated in the educational assessment along with discussion of the possible meaning and significance of the results. It also attempts to respond to the controversy which has surrounded the assessment program since its inception in 1970 by delineating its purpose which is the provision of information for decision-making at the state, local, and individual student levels. Because these data are derived from students taking objective referenced tests, they reflect student attainment of a specific set of learner performance objectives which were developed by Michigan educators in an attempt to articulate the skills which students should achieve in school. The tests used to measure attainment of the objectives were developed through a cooperative effort between the Michigan Department of Education and local district educators. (Author/DEP)
