The Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) today announced that Standard & Poor's School Evaluation Services (SES) released new data and analyses about the state's school districts and added new research tools to the SES web site <>.

“Michigan now has the most powerful and most objective accountability tool in the country — five years of data and written reports provided by Standard & Poor's School Evaluation Services,” said Gov. John ENGLER. “Michigan is the first state to introduce a powerful new tool to find schools and districts that are making the best progress toward meeting new federal goals for all students.”

With the addition of 2000-2001 school year data to the SES web site, some five-year trends noted by Standard & Poor's include:

All regions' passing rates on the MEAP improved between 1997 and 2001;

Passing rates on the MEAP increased among every racial group during the five-year period, and low-income students made faster gains than their more affluent peers.

Schools in the Upper Peninsula on average achieved the highest MEAP passing rates in 2001 as well as the greatest improvement in scores during the 5-year period.

New web tools added to the site include:

First time availability of school level data;

MEAP performance data, shown by grade, subject and student group;

New search tools that enable users to identify `better performers' and create custom comparison groups;

“Parents Corner,” redesigned in response to Web site traffic from parents who represent almost 40 percent of all SES visitors.
