M-Step Information: Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress

Grade 5: The elementary M-STEP social studies test includes items that measure gradelevel content expectations for grades 3, 4, and 5. It will be administered to students in the spring of grade 5 and follow the same blueprint that was previously administered to students in the fall of grade 6.

Grade 8: The middle school M-STEP social studies test includes items that measure grade-level content expectations for grades 6, 7, and 8. It will be administered to students in the spring of grade 8 and follows the same blueprint that was previously administered to students in the fall of grade 9.

Grade 11: The high school M-STEP social studies test will measure high school content expectations that a student should know and be able to demonstrate by spring of grade 11. The assessment is similar to previous administrations of the MME Day 3 social studies test with additional items that require students to analyze and interpret graphic stimuli.

PASST

PASST stands for "Performance Assessments of Social Studies Thinking”.  It is a Michigan led group developing assessments aligned to the Michigan Content Expectations in Social Studies as well as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework.

Formative Assessment

Formative assessment encompasses all those activities undertaken by teachers, and/or by their students, which provide information to be used as feedback to modify the teaching and learning activities in which they are engaged.  Such assessment becomes formative assessment when the evidence is actually used to adapt the teaching to meet student needs.   – Black and Wiliam
