Update From Superintendent Ehlers
The Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) is a standardized, online assessment that is administered to students once a year throughout the state of Michigan. All students in 3rd through 8th grade takes tests in Math and English Language Arts. Students in 5th and 8th grade also take assessments in Science and Social Studies.
We all want your child’s state assessment experience to be as relaxed and stress-free as possible. Your positive outlook and supportive manner going into these assessments also will influence your child’s experience. You can help your child by ensuring that s/he is well-rested on testing day. Students need to arrive on time to school by 8:15am everyday, but especially on testing days.
Please avoid scheduling appointments or planned absences during testing times. Testing will be taking place from approximately 10:00am-2:00pm on the following days:
April 20, 21, 22, 23 and April 27, 28, 29, 30
May 18, 19, 20, 21
Remember, testing is part of learning. State assessment results do not impact student grades. Schools and districts use the results for curriculum planning and school improvement initiatives that benefit all students. If you would like to learn more about the M-STEP, please visit www.mi.gov/mstep.
