The Michigan Educational Assessment Program test is used to measure the success of high school students and school districts, but it may be driving schools to cheat to gain the desired results. State Treasurer Doug Roberts released a list of 71 Michigan schools under investigation for possible cheating on the MEAP test. The investigation comes after essay answers from eight students from the same school were found to be suspiciously close. These allegations have angered many superintendents and caused teachers to question what they can and cant do to prepare the students for the test. Teachers are given answers to the questions before the test is given out and they format their teaching of the material accordingly.
