K-12 Alternative Assessments

The Alternative Assessments Researcher file contains commonly requested student-level assessment data from the K-12 environment pertaining to alternative state administered tests. For this file, the assessments are MI-Access (current) and MEAP-Access (retired 13/14). Data covers all students from private, home schooled and public schools who have participated in these assessments. While private and home schooled students are included in this dataset, they are not advised for reporting unless specifically researching questions around those groups of students. MDE & CEPI do not include private or home schooled students in their reporting.

Number of Individuals with Records

We have Alternative Assessment records for over 100 thousand students. With regards to each specific assessment, we have records for 40 thousand students that were assessed using the MEAP-Access and 80 thousand students that were assessed using the MI-Access.

Number of Test Takers by Grade

We have scores for 30 to 40 thousand individuals that were tested in each grade from 3rd to 11th grade.
