M-Step & College Board
M-STEP replaces the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) that previously took place in the fall (2013). One major change to our state assessment process is that the test will now be administered online, instead of a paper/pencil format.
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. More information will follow from your student's individual building on the specific dates and times that testing will take place.
