New Visual Tool Available to Help Communicate Purpose of the MEAs

With the upcoming MEA testing window opening soon, the Maine Department of Education has created a visual tool to help schools and districts when communicating with families and communities about the Maine Educational Assessments (MEAs). The tool outlines why Maine administers a state assessment to students, what scores are used for, and why participation in the MEAs is important.

The tool is available as a graphic visual and as a text-only accessible version:
