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.
Each jurisdiction is responsible for grading the MEE for the examinees who tested in the jurisdiction. NCBE provides an analysis for use by the graders. The analysis identifies the issues raised by the question, cites appropriate authority, and indicates suggested weights for discussion of the issues.
Examinees in UBE jurisdictions are instructed to answer the MEE according to generally accepted fundamental legal principles. Examinees in non-UBE jurisdictions are instructed to answer according to generally accepted fundamental legal principles unless instructed otherwise by their jurisdiction.

Recently administered MEE questions (without analyses), as well as older MEE questions with analyses, are available at no charge on the Preparing for the MEE page.
NCBE-developed MBE, MPT, and MEE questions typically are drafted, revised, and finalized over an approximately three-year period, including pre-testing of MBE items on a live exam prior to administration as scored items. For more information, see:
