Beardsley, Leah M.; And Others
This report on the 1974 testing of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) begins with a summary of the results of the 1973 tests and a discussion of changes made in the testing program. In 1974, thirty objectives were tested at grade 4 and forth at grade 7. For each of these objectives, this volume presents a sample item, a brief discussion of student performance on items testing the objective, remarks concerning the diagnosis of specific difficulties with the objective, and suggestions for classroom activities. Suggestions are offered to local education agencies for the use of assessment results in establishing priorities for curricular and instructional change. Specific advice for staff orientation and management strategies for teachers are also offered. Diagnostic tests are provided for classroom use. Appendices provide a summary of statewide assessment results and a detailed list of changes made in MEAP tests between 1973 and 1974. (SD)
