Nationally, school districts are required to provide their communities with a report card of student progress in meeting the state standards. These standards require assessments in reading, mathematics, science, and writing. Currently, Maine uses the EmpowerME test to assess and measure progress in Reading and Math for students in grades 3-8 and in Writing in grades 5 and 8. The Maine Education Assessment (MEA) is used to measure progress in Science in grades 5 and 8, and the Maine High School Assessment (MHSA) is used to measure progress in Science at grade 11. Maine is the only state nationwide that uses The College Board’s SAT at grade 11 to measure progress in Reading, Math, and Writing. All third-year students at Marshwood High School take the SAT. All of these state assessments are administered in the Spring.
When you view the report card via the link below, you will find that each grade level includes a table that contains this data. The tables include two years of data along with a comparison to the State of Maine data. Grade references pertain to the standards being assessed.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Superintendent of School’s office at any time. We hope you agree that the information provided here confirms what we here in MSAD #35 have always known—that the education provided in this District is second to none!
