ESSA DATA DASHBOARD (click link below):  

Maine’s public school students in grades 3-8 and in the third year of high school are required by both state and federal law to be assessed each year in mathematics and English language arts (ELA)/literacy. They are further required to be assessed in

science in grades 5 and 8, and in the third year of high school. 2018 is the first year in which we have had consistent data from the same assessment (MEA 3-8 and SAT in high school ) allowing us to begin and assess trend lines of student performance. When using large scale standardized assessments, such as the MEA, it is important to note that it provides only a “slice” of an individual student’s progress and is a small sample of overall success. Our teachers utilize other on-going assessments and programs that continually monitor student success.

Maine’s ESEA Data Dashboard provides information on schools and districts including data on enrollment, attendance, student and staff demographics, behavior, per pupil spending, academic performance, and graduation rates.

Note: Maine’s school year 2019-2020 assessment results were not published due to the COVID-19 pandemic. School year 2020-2021 testing was administered in Spring, 2021 using the NWEA assessment system. Both NECAP and the SAT are no longer used as state assessments. The most current data on the dashboard is from the 2021-2022 testing year. Because it is a new platform, the years cannot be compared.
