Teacher Reminders

Are your M-Step Testing Times all Set?

  • Look over the paper copy of the DRAFT M-Step schedule and let me know if there are any changes needed by the extended deadline of Friday, March 18th. After Friday, I will send out the schedule electronically and reserve the lab and laptops for you.
  • Please have all headphones labeled for your students and audio checked before testing window opens.
  • Plain scratch paper can be used during all testing but needs to be collected with the student's name on it just like the test ticket and kept secure during all breaks.
  • Equation builder is new this year and for all grades. Please show your students the tutorial video "How to create and edit equations" and have them practice the math sample questions using the drag and drop number line and equation builder on https://wbte.drcedirect.com/mi/portals/mi/ott1
