Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP)

In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

    My daughter has been enrolled in the CAP since it started three years ago. We LOVE it. My daughter has excelled in every subject and got near perfect MEAP scores this year! I'm so proud of her and thankful that there was such a program when she needed it! I also think that by having the same teacher for three years really helped her reach her full potential as she didn't have to go through an awkward 'getting know the teacher and their expectations' period. However that brings me to the one thing that I'm not real happy about. That is the school actually did change the teacher at the beginning of this school year and that caused exactly what I mentioned above. Fortunately the awkwardness didn't last too long but we really do miss the original CAP teacher (who was instrumental in the development of the CAP program!! ;0)
