M-STEP Assessment
This spring, Michigan is replacing the 44-year old Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) with a new assessment called the Michigan Student Test of Education Progress, otherwise known as M-STEP. 
In prior school years, students in grades 3-8 were administered the MEAP test over a two week period in October.  This school year, students will complete the new M-STEP assessment in an online format within a three-week testing window, established by the State of Michigan, during April through early June.  During this three-week window, students will not be testing every day, all day.
The M-STEP includes assessments designed by the Michigan Department of Education to effectively measure academic growth for today’s students.  English language arts (including reading, writing, and listening) and mathematics will be assessed in grades 3-8 and 11, science in grades 4, 7, and 11, and social studies in grades 5, 8, and 11.

Annual Education Report

The federal components of the Annual Education Report (AER) provide detailed information about the status of education in Michigan’s public schools, public school academies, districts and Michigan’s statewide performance. This report provides all of the information on Teacher Quality, Student Assessment and Accountability for schools, districts and the state in one convenient place:

Teacher Qualifications: Identifies teacher qualifications in relation to requirements. Here you can find how many teachers in a school, district or across the state possess specific qualifications.

Student Assessment: Presents assessment information for English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8 and 11, and science for grades 5, 8 and 11, compared to targets for all students as well as subgroups of students. The report helps users understand achievement progress within grades and schools, and to make comparisons to district, state and national achievement benchmarks.​

Accountability Scorecard: Uses information from assessments, graduation and attendance rates to determine if the school and district are meeting accountability targets. Here you can identify how well your school and district are serving the overall academic needs of students. More information about the Accountability Scorecards is available at:
