The Maine Department of Education has awarded Measured Progress the contract for the 2015-16 Maine Educational Assessments (MEA) in mathematics and ELA/literacy for grades 3–8 and third-year high school.
Aligned to Maine’s College and Career Readiness Standards, the MEA at grades 3–8 will be a program called eMPower Maine developed by Measured Progress. The MEA at the high school level will be the SAT, provided at no personal cost to all third-year high school students under the same contract.
eMPower Maine will use a variety of item types to yield meaningful information about what Maine students know and how they can apply that knowledge. To establish continuity, eMPower Maine provides some comparability to assessments administered in other states but with shorter testing time than previous assessments.
