2012-2013 Maine High School Assessment
Science and Writing scores

In the latest statewide test results for Maine’s high school juniors, scores dipped in both writing and science in the last year.

The number of students at or above grade level in writing dropped more than three percentage points, from 46.8 percent to 43.7 percent.

Science scores dropped three percentage points from 44.8 to 41.3 percent in 2012-13.

Maine uses the SAT writing section for the writing scores, and proficiency is any score between 450-610 out of 800 possible points.

The science test is a state-developed test, not a standardized test like the SAT.

Not counted were students described as partially meeting proficiency standards.

Below are the individual school scores.
