This week students in grades 3 – 6 will be begin taking the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, or M-STEP. The M-STEP is a 21st Century test given online each spring and is designed to gauge how well students are mastering state standards. These standards broadly outline what students should know and be able to do in order to be prepared to enter the workplace, career education training, and college.
