Why Is This Important?
The Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) assessment is given online to students in grades 3-8 and measures current student knowledge of Michigan’s high academic standards in English language arts (ELA), mathematics, science, and social studies. This metric measures the percentage 3rd grade M-STEP test takers who met 3rd grade content standards on the ELA section of the test.

Students did not take the M-STEP in 2020 due to Covid. Part of the effort around this goal will be to address disparities that exist in the racial/ethnic subgroups.
The county is working with Oakland Schools and the Board of Commissioners on support programs including individual and small group tutoring to reduce the learning delay experienced during the pandemic.
