Fremont Public Schools uses several assessments to cover the full range of student needs.
The ACT® test is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college.
The Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) is Michigan's general assessment for students in grades 3 through 9. MEAP is based on Michigan's Grade Level Content Expectations in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students are assessed in the fall of each year on the prior year's expectations. All students in grades 3 through 8 are assessed in reading and mathematics. In addition, grades 4 and 7 are assessed in writing, grades 5 and 8 are tested in science, and grades 6 and 9 are evaluated in social studies.
The Michigan Merit Examination (MME) measures Michigan 11th graders' career- and college- readiness. It is based on the Michigan High School Content Expectations and provides scores in the areas of mathematics, science, reading, writing, and social studies. Students who did not test as 11th graders or do not have valid MME scores are tested as 12th graders.
During the months of September, January, and May, students in grades K - 8 will take Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) computerized tests called Measures of Academic ProgressTM (MAP). MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child's level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child's growth.
The PLAN® program helps 10th graders build a solid foundation for future academic and career success and provides information needed to address school districts' high-priority issues. It is a comprehensive guidance resource that helps students measure their current academic development, explore career/training options, and make plans for the remaining years of high school and post-graduation years.
PLAN can help all students—those who are college-bound as well as those who are likely to enter the workforce directly after high school.
