Maine Assessment & Accountability Reporting System (MAARS)

MAARS – Public Site

The MAARS Public Site provides public access to data from Maine's assessment and accountability systems, beginning with data from the 2015-16 administration of Maine Educational Assessments (MEA). Information is provided about how Maine's students performed on state assessments beginning in 2015-16 in mathematics, English language arts/literacy, and science.

There are two types of reports available:

  • Quick Reports provide tables of basic participation and performance data for each school, each district, and for the state as a whole. These reports contain links to ESEA Report Cards.
  • Interactive Reports are more detailed customized reports for users who wish to drill deeper. Users are able to view data about particular grade levels or particular groups of students.  Data for a particular school or district can be compared to data from other selected schools or districts.

Detailed Assessment Reports for Students with Disabilities – This resource provides MEA participation and achievement data at the State, SAU, and school levels for students with disabilities in accordance with 34 CFR §300.160(f).

MAARS – Confidential Site

The MAARS Confidential Site provides confidential access to detailed information about how students performed on state assessments in mathematics, English language arts/literacy, and science. For English learners, data are also reported for annual assessments of English language proficiency. Access to this confidential student data is controlled by District Assessment Coordinators (DACs) in accordance with the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). DACs may reference the MAARS User Management Guide Version 1.1(PDF, 767KB) for instructions on establishing user permissions for this site.
