  1. There’s been a lot of chatter about this among educators in Michigan where the statewide assessments are called the MEAPs (Michigan Educational Assessment Program). MEAP is used as noun, adjective and verb. And sometimes expletive.

    Louisiana uses the same acronym–the LEAPs (off a high bridge, no doubt).
