This spring, the State of Michigan is replacing the 44-year-old Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) with a summative assessment called the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP). In prior school years, the MEAP assessments were administered in October. This school year, the testing window for the new M-STEP assessments is April 14th – June 5th.
Students in grades 6 – 8 will take the English language arts and the mathematics assessments, which will include both open-ended response and multiple choice questions. The science test will be administered to 7th graders and the social studies test will be given to 8th graders. The science and social studies assessments will only include multiple choice questions.
