M-STEP replaces the MEAP

This year our students will be taking the state assessment in the Spring. The M-STEP replaces the MEAP test our students used to take in October.

The 8th graders will begin testing on Monday, April 13th through May 1, 2015. They will take the ELA, Math and Social studies tests.

The 7th graders will begin testing on Monday, April 27th through May 15, 2015. 7th graders are tested on ELA, Math and Science.

The 6th graders begin testing on Monday, May 18th through June 5, 2015. They will be tested in ELA and Math. Each grade will have three weeks to take the tests.

It is important for students to be in school during the testing period. There are classroom activities as well as computer based tests that are scheduled for the M-STEP. Our goal is to assess 100% of our students. The results will help us understand how we are meeting the curriculum goals we have set for ourselves, as well as give you information about your child's progress learning the grade level material.

You can view some sample type questions. The M-STEP Spring 2015 Preview must be used in Google Chrome. Copy and paste this link into Chrome https://wbte.drcedirect.com/MI/portals/mi/ott1.


Click on the 2015 Preview Link, you will then need to click to sign on. Once on the sign in page, use the username and password displayed on the screen to log in.


Students and teachers will be working together to get to know the computer tools that will be available this spring since they are very different from other programs we use at school.

Warmer weather & bikes

With the hope of warmer weather soon, please remind your student that if they ride a bike to and from school they need to be safe when crossing any streets. Students should also lock their bikes up at the bike racks provided at the front of the school. Helmets are also encouraged for student safety.
