Student MSTEP Scores
You will soon be receiving the results of your child’s performance on the M-STEP, Michigan’s new statewide exam.
The test was taken during the Spring of 2016.
This year’s test scores on the very challenging M-STEP are overall improved from 2015, and district leaders will be studying these results to discover where we are having success, and where we see areas in which to improve. The test results also will reveal which groups of students are doing well, and which will need more or different kinds of support.
Here’s some good news about the 2016 M-STEP:
• Teachers and parents now can work together to identify where students excel and where they need additional help, and find ways to better support students.
• As we learn more about our school’s results, we can make decisions that will help improve instruction. Over time, each Van Dyke Public Schools graduate will be stronger and better prepared to succeed in the next grade and after high school, in college or post-secondary training, career, and life.
• No matter whether your student’s scores improved or declined compared to last year, students won’t be affected in a bad way. The scores will be used, as they always have been, to help improve our programs and our schools.
Congratulate your child on a job well done, and please let your child's school know if you have questions about the M-STEP, Michigan’s learning standards, or your child’s progress overall. We look forward to helping your child continue toward the best possible start in life.
