State won't assign blame in MEAP security breach

State officials have decided not to cast blame for a security problem that led to a retake of part of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program test last fall.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports the decision came after an investigation into the security breach that cost the state about $500,000.

The problem arose after information about essay topics on the MEAP writing test was printed in an October article by the Citizen Patriot.

Not all Michigan students had yet taken the test. Thousands of fifth- and sixth-graders were required to retake a part of the exam.

State officials have considered requiring all students take each test on the same day to prevent similar problems in the future.
