Moving Up To M-STEP! The new Michigan state test for this year is called the M-Step. M-STEP replaces the MEAP test, which was not online and measured the previous state standards. This is the first time all Michigan statewide summative assessments will be offered online. Online assessments can provide deeper, richer, faster assessment results to guide student learning. > More information in Newsletter
New State Assessments ~ Just Around the Corner
The Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) replaces the forty year-old Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP), moving the state assessment from the fall to the spring and from paper/pencil administration to an online format. This change allows student measurement to be based upon current versus prior year learning.
As in previous years, English language arts (reading, writing and listening) and mathematics will be assessed in grades 3-8. Science will be assessed in grades grades 4 and 7, and social studies in grades 5 and 8.
The 11th grade Michigan Merit Examination (MME) consists of ACT Plus Writing (a college entrance exam) and WorkKeys (a work skills assessment) as well as the M-STEP summative assessments which will measure student growth in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Beginning in the spring of 2016, the ACT Plus Writing will be replaced by the SAT.
Specific testing dates vary by grade level, with testing occurring between March 3 - June 6. Please pay special attention to the dates provided by individual buildings to ensure that your child is present, eats a good breakfast, and is rested for the assessments.
