Annual Education Reports

  • Annual Education Report (AER)

    The AER is designed to meet the federal requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001 for an annual report. The Combined Report provides detailed data on state administered student assessment results, accountability results, teacher qualification information, and the state results for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The Combined Report is populated with the appropriate information for the state, each local education agency, and each school. The Combined Reports and cover letters also meet the state requirements for reporting to parents and communities in an annual education report.

    Richards Middle School Annual Education Report 2017-2018


    This report provides all of the information on Teacher Quality, Student Assessment and Accountability for schools, districts and the state in one convenient place:

    • Teacher Qualifications: Identifies teacher qualifications in relation to requirements. Here you can find how many teachers in a school, district or across the state possess specific qualifications.
    • Student Assessment: Presents assessment information for English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8 and 11, and science for grades 4, 7 and 11, compared to targets for all students as well as subgroups of students. The report helps users understand achievement progress within grades and schools, and to make comparisons to district, state and national achievement benchmarks.
    • Accountability Scorecard: Uses information from assessments, graduation and attendance rates to determine if the school and district are meeting accountability targets. Here you can identify how well your school and district are serving the overall academic needs of students.


    More information about the Accountability Scorecards is available on the MDE Michigan School Scorecards page.
