    To the posting reporter: please fully describe the numbers provided with this article to give readers a context in which to understand how these numbers reflect the recent scores and year-to-year changes. As a parent, I'm used to seeing on the MEAP report a percentile rank and a scaled performance rating of 1-4 (fortunately, my student has almost always received the best scaled rating of "1"). If you're unfamiliar, perhaps this document on the State of Michigan website will help: http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mde/05-MEAP_FAL
    Thank you, in advance, for your review and update.
