MEAP TEST
(2007-10-19)
(wgvu) - MICHIGAN SCHOOLS WILL RECEIVE A ONE-WEEK
WINDOW NEXT MONTH TO GIVE A REPLACEMENT VERSION OF PART OF A STATE
STANDARDIZED TEST AFTER A BREACH MAY HAVE MADE EARLIER RESULTS
SUSPECT.
SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN ORDERED TO HAVE ALL OF THE STATE'S FIFTH- AND
SIXTH-GRADERS RETAKE PART OF THE WRITING TEST OF THE MICHIGAN
EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT PROGRAM.
THE REPLACEMENT PORTION WILL BE GIVEN BETWEEN NOVEMBER 5TH AND
13TH.
THE WRITING TEST WAS CALLED INTO QUESTION LAST WEEK WHEN THE
JACKSON CITIZEN PATRIOT PUBLISHED THE LEAD-INS TO ESSAYS ON THE
WRITING TESTS. A REPORTER WITH THE NEWSPAPER HAD BEEN ALLOWED TO
INTERVIEW STUDENTS AT A JACKSON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ABOUT THE TEST
FOR AN ARTICLE.
THAT LED THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT TO FLAG A SECURITY BREACH,
FINDING THAT STUDENTS AT OTHER SCHOOLS WHO HAD NOT TAKEN THE TEST
COULD HAVE BEEN TIPPED OFF TO THE ESSAY DIRECTIONS.
