The Maine DOE is sharing resources with schools to support their preparations for the annual statewide science assessment, which will run May 4-22.
Test materials for the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) for Science, a paper/pencil test administered in grades 5, 8 and the third year of high school, will be shipped and should arrive no later than Thursday, April 24.
In an effort to help local schools prepare for the assessment, the MEA Science page on the Department’s website has been updated to include the following test administration materials:
- Maine Operational Procedures for 2014 – 2015 MEA Science
- 2015 Accommodation Guide
- Table of MEA Allowable Accommodations
- Approved Bilingual Dictionaries

Additionally, an MEA Science Test Coordinator & Test Administrator Webinar will be recorded and posted on the Department’s website on April 9.
