How is the MEE developed?

The MEE questions are developed by the MEE Drafting Committee and outside experts in the fields covered by the test. Questions are edited by the Drafting Committee, pretested, and analyzed independently by outside content experts.

How is the MEE graded?

Every MEE question is accompanied by an analysis for use by graders in each user jurisdiction. The analysis identifies the issues raised by the question, cites appropriate authority, and indicates suggested weights for discussion of the issues. The MEE may be answered and graded according to the law of general application or according to state law. The National Conference of Bar Examiners sponsors a grading workshop on the weekend following test administration. Graders for each question meet to review the analysis and sample answers to the question. Revisions to the analyses are sent to each user jurisdiction immediately after the grading workshop.
