Teacher Notes


Please note the dates above that we will be taking the M-STEP. In addition to the testing times, there are "classroom activities" that students need to be present for in order to complete the testing. Our last "classroom activity" date is today.

M-STEP Preparation

We spent time over the last few weeks working through sample problems for the M-Step. I encourage you to have your son/daughter spend some time at home with the on-line practice too.
