Note: Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan Department of Education adopted more rigorous proficiency calculations (cut scores) to more accurately reflect career and college readiness. To ease the transition, performance in prior years shown in the chart above has been recalculated. Student performance information has not changed and is valid as it was reported at the time.
* Economic disadvantage is measured by eligibility for free or reduced-price lunch. We compare statewide overall performance to statewide economically disadvantaged performance to make sure we focus on providing a high-quality education and equal opportunities for learning to all students.
