Select Text–Paragraph Item Clarification
On the ELA M-STEP, students will encounter an item with a paragraph of information, such as an excerpt from a reading passage. Students will be directed to select one or more sentences from the paragraph. Students should not expect that every sentence is selectable. This has caused confusion at many testing sites. These items have been reviewed and are functioning as intended.
You can see an example of this by clicking the button below and selecting 8th grade ELA #10.
Choose 8th grade ELA #10 which follows the format described.
