Across the state of Maine, children will be taking a new state assessment at a new time this year. In the past students would have taken the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) in the fall. This school year students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take the eMPower aligned assessment in the spring. As it gets closer to the time, you will be informed by schools of the specific dates when your child will be tested.
We in RSU #1 are doing all we can to assure that this transition is a smooth one, including discussing the change directly with students. Following is the address of the Maine Department of Education's assessment website where you will find information. Check back to the site regularly since new information will be added as it becomes available.
