M-STEP Results: What Black River Families Can Expect
This past spring, BRPS students took one of Michigan’s summative statewide tests. Students in grades 3-7 took the M-STEP (Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress). Students in grade 8 and 9 took the PSAT 8/9 (for English language arts and mathematics) and the M-STEP (for science and social studies). Students in grade 10 took the PSAT 10. Students in grade 11 took the MME (Michigan Merit Exam). Final results from the M-STEP, PSAT 8/9/10, and MME will be sent home with students on Monday, September 16 (or earlier for some grade levels).
The purpose of these state summative assessments is to see how close our students are to reaching Michigan’s high standards in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. For older students, the PSAT, SAT, and WorkKeys components also measure students’ readiness for success in college and careers.
Families are encouraged to review Parent Reports and learn where your child might need additional support.
The Michigan Department of Education has developed several useful documents that are available for download on the M-STEP web page (www.michigan.gov/mstep) and MME web page (www.michigan.gov/mme):
