Weill Hall

The Michigan Consortium for Educational Research (MCER) will present early impact analyses for the first graduating cohort to experience the Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC). This first-look at results will address what has happened to student achievement, graduation and dropout rates, and college enrollment and persistence as a result of MMC implementation. In addition, representatives from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) will discuss Michigan's efforts to adopt new College and Career Ready standards. The conference is geared towards engaging participants in a discussion of achievement and college-going trends in Michigan - in order to consider how evidence-based practices can support educational improvement efforts at the state and local levels.

Hosted by the Michigan Consortium for Education Research (MCER), a partnership between the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Michigan State University (MSU), and the University of Michigan (UM) Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy's Education Policy Initiative (EPI).
