In June 2014 the Michigan Legislature required the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to develop a new test for spring 2015. The new assessment system is called the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, or M-STEP.
The M-STEP will include summative assessments designed to measure student growth effectively for today’s students. English language arts and mathematics will be assessed in grades 3–8, science in grades 4 and 7, and social studies in grades 5 and 8. It also includes the Michigan Merit Examination in 11th grade which consists of the ACT Plus Writing, WorkKeys, and M-STEP summative in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
Comstock Public Schools is promoting #STEPupyourgame as a district-wide campaign to encourage students to do their best on the Spring Assessments.
