Michigan Department of Education Looks To Replace MEAP Test

A two week public comment period is happening, as the public gets a chance to weigh-in on standardized testing.

The state is moving away from the Michigan Educational Assessment Program, or the MEAP test, that has been around for more than 40 years.

Lawmakers have ordered the state to come up with a replacement MEAP test for the next school year, and to issue a request for proposals from testing companies for a new test in the 2015-2016 academic year.

The Michigan Department of Education has planned a public hearing about the issue, July 30 in Lansing.
