This report is written for local educators who are responsible for the administration of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) tests and for other people who are generally interested in the purposes and methodology of MEAP. The 1975-76 assessment will report 19 variables at the student, classroom, school or district levels, in the areas of (a) Human Resources, (b) District Financial Resources, (c) Percent Minority, (d) Dropout Rate, (e) Student Achievement, and (f) Size. The minimal performance objectives and MEAP tests were mainly developed by Michigan teachers and curriculum specialists. In addition to every-pupil testing of fourth and seventh graders in reading and mathematics, the 1975-76 program will continue the first grade pilot testing begun in 1974-75 in a selected sample of schools. The introduction of a volunteer grade 10 limited pilot project is the greatest change from previous years' assessment programs. This report also presents general information on the procedural aspects of the assessment program which will be found in greater detail in coordinator, administrator, and interpretive manuals which will accompany the MEAP testing materials and resultant data.
