Abstract/ Summary

A study from the Center for Research and Evaluation at the University of Maine provides a framework for conducting local evaluations involving the Maine Educational Assessment. While maintaining the value of the statewide MEA, the authors support the importance of local assessment and encourage educators to use it as a tool for examining curriculum and other local factors. The MEA is designed to align with the Maine Learning Results and measure schools' progress toward meeting the new learning standards.
