State sees improvement in fall 2012 MEAP tests story image

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state says the fall 2012 Michigan Education Assessment Program tests show student gains for reading, mathematics and writing in all grades.
The Michigan Department of Education released the results Monday.
The state says students showed gains in reading proficiency at all grade levels, particularly in grades 3 and 8. Results for mathematics also had proficiency gains at all grade levels, with the largest gains occurring in grades 3, 4, and 5. Writing proficiency saw increases in grades 4 and 7.
Gov. Rick Snyder said in a statement that the state is "moving in the right direction" but "much work remains and achieving further gains will demand our continued commitment."
The once-per-year MEAP tests are based on career- and college-ready standards.

Kalamazoo Public Schools says students in just about every grade showed improvements in math. One grade stayed the same. Three of six grades tested showed improvements in reading and the district is also tracking improvements over the last five years. It says the average number of students at or above proficiency in reading has increased 13 percent since 2007.
