Essential Elements with Michigan Range of Complexity

The CCEE documents are Michigan's alternate content standards for ELA and Mathematics (replacing the Extended Grade Level Content Expectations and Extended High School Content Expectations in ELA and Mathematics).

The documents:

  • Assist educators in understanding the links between the general assessment content standards and the Essential Elements.

  • Provide the most current drafts of the Michigan Range of Complexity, which outlines how the skills associated with each target Essential Element (that will be measured as "state assessable") is to be assessed using the three levels of MI-Access.

    • High Range of Complexity will be measured using MI-Access Functional Independence

    • Medium Range of Complexity will be measured using MI-Access Supported Independence

    • Low Range of Complexity will be measured using MI-Access Participation
