MEAP-Access is an alternate assessment based on modified achievement standards. MEAP-Access is administered in the fall of each year and is intended to bridge the gap between the MI-Access assessments and the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) for students with disabilities. MEAP-Access assesses students on grade level content expectations in the core content areas of Reading and Mathematics for students in grades 3 - 8, and Writing at grades 4 and 7.
MEAP-Access was developed through a collaboration of MDE offices and teams of Michigan educators and stakeholders familiar with the population and content being assessed.
