Scores Delayed

By  | 

Results of a state standardized test could be delayed another two to three weeks.

Results of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program test were expected by late May or early June.

But a spokesman for the state treasury department says it could be another two to three weeks. The treasury department handles the MEAP.

The state Department of Education needs the scores to calculate each school's adequate yearly progress. The department plans to include the measures of yearly progress in report cards for schools.

Those report cards are due to schools before the start of the upcoming school year.

T.J. Bucholz is a spokesman for the state education department. He says the department aims to get the report cards to schools by Aug. 15.

He says the delay in getting scores will make that harder. But he says, "we will do it somehow.''
