Michigan students' MEAP results will be released Monday morning for students in Plymouth-Canton and in all public schools across the state.
The results were scheduled to be released at 10 a.m.
The Michigan Education Assessment Program exam assesses students in grades 3 through 9:
- Reading and math are tested in grades 3 through 8;
- Writing is tested in grades 4 and 7
- Science is tested in grades 5 and 8;
- Social studies is tested in grades 6 and 9.
The annual test is designed to show students' proficiency in career- and college-ready materials. The MEAP is administered by the Department of Education, which is releasing the data on Monday.
The MEAP as a standard of measuring student achievement is on its way out; beginning in the 2014-15 school year, students will be given an online exam to test their knowledge of core subjects. (Read: Just the Facts: New Test to Replace MEAP.)
Last year, Plymouth-Canton students scored a higher level of proficiency in every grade level and every subject than students statewide on the MEAP. Here's a look at last year's results.
Check back with Plymouth-Canton Patch after 10 a.m. today, when the scores are officially released.
