Summary

The Massachusetts Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) is designed to improve curriculum and instruction in the public schools. The MEAP tests all students in grades 4, 8, and 12 in major curriculum areas biennially. The test is not designed to yield scores for individual students. This document describes the content of the assessment instruments at the different grade levels, without releasing secure test questions. For each of the four subject areas (reading, mathematics, social studies, and science) a general development framework is discussed. These frameworks give an overview of the focus of the tests by presenting the broad categories of content and processes characterizing the subject area domains for the purposes of MEAP assessment. The content dimension of each subject is then described by listing the concepts, ideas, and skills that would be included in the reporting categories or subtests. Numerous sample test questions are provided for each grade and each content category. (SLD)
