M-STEP Testing Information

M-STEP Testing Information

M-Step testing begins in April.  Please take note of the testing windows for your child below. Block teachers will post their specific testing times on their Google Classroom pages as soon as they are available. Teachers have access to practice sessions provided by the state, and have been encouraged to allow students to explore these assessment samples.

Thank you in advance for all your efforts to make M-Step testing a positive experience. Best practice informs us that several factors influence test outcomes:

  • Arriving at school well rested and after having a healthy breakfast.

  • Approaching the test with a positive attitude.

  • Taking your time, doing your best, and asking for clarification, when needed.
