(M-STEP) Testing Begins the Week of April 16th

Hello Bryant Families,

Your child will bring home a letter tomorrow, regarding the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP).  Although the testing window for administering these tests began Monday, April 9, we will not start testing until the week of April 16th.  Students will take all M-STEP tests online.

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 tests and the social studies tests will be given to 8th graders. The science and social studies assessments will only include multiple choice questions.

Please see M-STEP assessment schedule below:
