LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state says the fall 2012 Michigan Education Assessment Program tests show student gains for reading, mathematics and writing in all grades.

The Michigan Department of Education released the results Monday.

The state says students showed gains in reading proficiency at all grade levels, particularly in grades 3 and 8. Results for mathematics also had proficiency gains at all grade levels, with the largest gains occurring in grades 3, 4, and 5. Writing proficiency saw increases in grades 4 and 7.

Gov. Rick Snyder said in a statement that the state is "moving in the right direction" but "much work remains and achieving further gains will demand our continued commitment."

The once-per-year MEAP tests are based on career- and college-ready standards.
