NEWS ON 2016 M-STEP AND MME
1. The MME in 11th grade will consist of:
  • the SAT with Essay
  • ACT WorkKeys
  • the online M-STEP Science and Social Studies.
There will no longer be an M-STEP English language arts and mathematics component. This reduces state-required testing time in 11th grade by up to 8 hours.
2. For the M-STEP in grades 3–8, the Performance Task portion of the English language arts assessment will only be administered once in elementary school (grade 5) and once in middle school (grade 8). This reduces testing time by 2.5 hours in each of the 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th grades!
The M-STEP Mathematics assessments will continue to include a Performance Task in grades 3 through 8.
3. The MDE will improve the testing experience by providing the test in smaller portions that may be administered over multiple days, so that students will not be required to complete the test in one sitting (more details to come).
4. The Spring 2016 testing windows have been adjusted (see schedule). The testing schedule for the M-STEP and MI-Access assessments will not begin until after most spring breaks have ended and will conclude before Memorial Day. The window will span 7 weeks: April 11–May 27, 2016. These adjustments, along with moving the administration of SAT and ACT WorkKeys to April, will reduce the overall footprint testing has in schools, while still allowing flexibility to successfully administer online.
Spring 2015 Statewide Assessment Transition
In November 2014, Michigan released an updated transition document to explain the new spring assessments. Please click here to view that document.
