Maine DOE - MAARS

Welcome to the MAARS Public Portal

The Maine Assessment and Accountability Reporting System (MAARS) site provides information about how Maine’s students performed on state assessments 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.
