The Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) is an annual test used to measure a student's mastery of the state's grade-level academic standards.
Which Grades and Subjects?
Students are assessed in reading and math in grades 3 through 8. In grades 5 and 8 students are assessed in writing and in grades 4 and 8 in science.
How is it Scored?
Students are scored at four levels: exceeds the standard, meets the standard, partially meets the standard, and does not meet the standard. The goal is for students to score at or above the standard level.
