The Michigan State Board of Education recently approved new MEAP and MME "cut scores" for Mathematics, Reading, Science and Social Studies. A cut score is the score that separates test takers into the categories: advanced, proficient, partially proficient and not proficient.
The new cut scores are higher and "raise the bar" for our students.
Due to the raise in cut scores, we anticipate an initial decline in the number of students reported as "proficient". We are confident this change will be temporary due to ongoing school improvement efforts and student support.
