(August 31, 2015) During the 2014-15 school year, Michigan replaced the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) assessment with the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) assessment. In the past, the MEAP assessment was used to assess grades three through nine, and the Michigan Merit Exam (MME) tested grade 11. The M-STEP assessed English language arts and mathematics for grades three through eight and 11, science in grades four, seven, and 11, and social studies in grades five, eight, and 11. In addition to using the M-STEP as part of the MME, the State of Michigan continued to use the ACT Plus Writing and ACT WorkKeys.
The timing of M-STEP, MME, ACT, and MI-Access tests was also changed this year, moving them from October to the May/June timeframe. Due to the test administration being later in the school year, and additional work needing to be done to score the new M-STEP test, public results for the 2014-15 tests will not be available until the late fall of 2015 on MI School Data.
CEPI has been working collaboratively with the Michigan Department of Education Division of Accountability Services (DAS) to plan for the release of public student testing reports for M-STEP, MI-Access, and ACT.
