Some Students to Receive New MEAP Math Scores

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Some students will get new Michigan Education Assessment Program math scores after a problem with some questions on the exam.

The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report new scores will be for grades 4, 7 and 8, as well as an exam for special education students in grades 3-8. The tests included questions that state officials had promised schools wouldn't be included.

New reports are to be sent to schools by the end of June, and scores may go up or down. Overall school scores also likely will be affected.

Michigan Department of Education spokeswoman Jan Ellis says the department will absorb costs to adjust scores.

Students took the exams last year and scores were released in February. Local educators told the department about issues about the questions.
