REMEMBER: AYP will be determined for
any NCLB sub group with 20 or more
Next year AYP for Reading and Math
will be determined by combining
all grades (3-8) in a school and
will use one year data.
Grades 3-8 is 40%
It is important to remember that 2006 MEA scores at grades 4 and 8 represent different scores based on different content standards and different achievement standards. The test was not easier or harder than past years, but was different.
The No Child Left Behind Act requires that at least 95% of all students in grades 3-8 take part in the MEA. In Maine, fully 99% of students took part at each grade and in each subject, which is a reflection on the commitment of Maine schools to this process. The MEA is designed to provide access to all students through standard administration of the test, participation by students with approved accommodations, or through alternate assessment.
Please go to the following link and down load Released
Items for Grades 3-8 to your hard drive.
MEA Test items are connected and matched to the
2007 Enhanced Grade Level Expectations. It is
important that all teachers are instructing and assessing
using the Enhanced GLE’s at their specific grade level.
Please go to the link below to down load Enhanced GLE's
for reading and math.
Currently there are 3 elementary schools,
38 Middle Schools, on CIPS status for
2006-2007. Twenty of these schools are
receiving Title One funds. There are currently
6 High Schools on hold.
05-06 Gr. 4 and 8 only had 3 each in this sub group.
06-07, there are now 20 in the sub group and it will be used to determine AYP for the school.
