Next year AYP for Reading and Math

will be determined by combining

will use one year data.

additional information
Additional Information
  • The following slides may be helpful to answer additional questions regarding MEA/AYP.
observations from 05 06 mea
Observations from 05-06 MEA

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.

05 06 mea observations cont
05-06 MEA Observations Cont.
  • Across all grades, a greater percentage of females than males met proficiency in reading, which is consistent with past performance and national trends. There were no significant differences in the numbers of students meeting proficiency in mathematics or science based on gender.
05 06 mea observations cont1
05-06 MEA Observations Cont.
  • There continues to be a decrease in mathematics performance at the middle school level, which is consistent with national measures and indicates the need for future research.
  • Students at all grades who report that the questions in the MEA, which measure Learning Results-based expectations, match what they have had the opportunity to learn in school, perform at a higher level.
selected observations cont
Selected Observations Cont.
  • There is a strong correlation at all grades that a moderate amount of homework (up to 2 hours on school nights) is associated with stronger performance on the MEA.
  • Those students who report reading more than 20 minutes at home each day perform considerably better on the MEA.

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
