Understanding the MeCAS and NECAP
All states are required to assess the progress of children who are educated in their public schools. In Maine, students take yearly assessments in core subjects starting in grade 3 and continuing through high school. The purposes of these tests are many; assessing student progress, determining areas where there needs increased instructional focus, and monitoring school progress at meeting yearly adequate progress in educating all students to the standards of learning set forth in the statewide curriculum.
Format of the MeCAS and NECAP
The NECAP Assessment in Reading and Mathematics in grades 3 and 4 is a multiple-choice and constructed-response format test. On the NECAP in Reading and Mathematics for grades 5 -8 there are multiple-choice, constructed-response and written answers required. These assessments are given in October; they are a measure of student performance on longer-term measures than what has been taught during the school year.
Taking the MeCAS and NECAP
The Grade Level/Span Expectations (GLE/GSE) is a framework for the skills and knowledge necessary to gain proficiency in a subject. The NECAP is based upon the expectations and learning objectives that the GLE/GSE’s provide.
