Student Testing

The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) administers several assessments to cover the full range of student learning. These include:
  • Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) is Michigan's general assessment for students in grades 3-8 and 11. M-STEP is aligned to Michigan's challenging learning standards in ELA, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students are assessed in the Spring of each year. To learn more about the M-STEP assessment please visit the MDE M-STEP summative page.
  • MI-Access is Michigan's alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards, designed for students with cognitive impairments whose IEP (Individualized Educational Program) team has determined that M-STEP and SAT assessments are not appropriate. To learn more about the MI-Access Assessment please visit the MDE MI-Access summative page.
  • Michigan Merit Examination (MME) measures Michigan 11th graders' career- and college-readiness. It consists of a free SAT with Essay that measures student knowledge on state ELA and mathematics standards, M-STEP science and social studies components, and the ACT WorkKeys- a work skills assessment. To learn more about the MME please visit the MDE MME and High School Assessments summative page.
  • The College Board SAT provides valuable information about college readiness. The assessment includes an Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section, which is composed of a Reading Test and a Writing and Language Test and a Math Test. To learn more about the SAT please visit the MDE MME and High School Assessments summative page.
