This Spring, Michigan students in grades 3rd-8th and 11th will participate in M-STEP testing. M-STEP (Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress) includes summative assessments designed to measure growth in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Niles Community Schools' students will be taking these assessments online again this year.
What role do you play during M-STEP testing? We are counting on parents to make sure children are in attendance on testing days and are giving them a pep talk about putting forth their best effort. The weeks we are testing are on the Howard-Ellis website and in the newsletters that have come home with your students.
