Goals for Spring 2015 Testing
• All Michigan students will transition to the new M-STEP
assessment with a positive experience
• Most schools will transition to online testing
• Schools get used to scheduling for online testing
• Online testing provides opportunity for more rapid feedback
• Move from fall testing to spring testing
• Now students will be tested on content learned during the
current school year as opposed to the previous school year

Accountability Implications
• It is the intent of the MDE not to use the results of the
2015 M-STEP assessment to make high-stakes
accountability determinations.
• Data will be provided to schools and districts for
informational purposes
• No Priority, Focus, or Reward labels for schools

Spring 2015 M-STEP Assessment Transition, slide 9
February 2, 2015
Classroom Activity and Associated Performance Task
• Required for students in grades 3-8
• Not required for students in grade 11
• Due to concerns about amount of time required to test in grade 11
• No accountability penalty in terms of participation or scoring for high
schools that choose not to administer the Classroom Activity and associated
Performance Task in Spring 2015
• College entrance test and Work skills assessments are required by law
• The Classroom Activity must be administered before the
Performance Task
• Provides a framework for the Performance Task
• Can’t have one without the other!

Considerations in establishing test administration window
• Provide schools with maximum flexibility in scheduling
• Maximize instructional time prior to testing
• Avoid traditional spring break weeks
• Complete bulk of testing prior to Memorial Day
• Reduce the online testing load that might occur at any one time
• Maximize statewide comparability by grade level – 3 week window
• Provide grade 11 an additional 5 weeks – 8 week window to provide
flexibility in scheduling around AP and IB testing
