M-STEP Mathematics Information:
Keypad Input and Calculators
The Equation Builder used last year in the Spring 2015 online administration of the M-STEP mathematics test has been replaced with a new and improved Keypad Input. The
Keypad Input allows for the entry of numbers, expressions, equations, etc., but does not perform any actual computations. Students can also enter numbers using their keyboard, but alpha characters cannot be entered.
• The Keypad Input buttons will vary according to required components of an item. Any necessary variable will be included on the Keypad.
• Computations are to be performed using the online calculator associated with items that are calculator-permitted.
• Some items will have both the Keypad Input and a calculator. Other items will have either the Keypad Input or the calculator. Some items will have neither.
Grades 6–8 have both non-calculator and calculator permitted items. The mathematics Sample Items Sets are partitioned into sections to reflect this. The calculator used by students in grade 6 is a basic calculator, while students in grades 7 and 8 use a
scientific calculator. Students in grades 3–5 are not permitted to use a calculator on any portion of the mathematics test.
