Bedford Public Schools Exceeds Average
State Performance in M-STEP Results

M-Step LogoIn the Spring of 2015, students took part in a new assessment testing program called the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, or more commonly called the M-STEP. This test has replaced the MEAP testing students had previously taken. The M-STEP is a very different test than the MEAP tests administered in past years. For example, M-STEP has fewer multiple choice questions and more questions that require problem solving and critical thinking skills than the previous MEAP assessment. Because this is a different test measuring different standards, M-STEP scores should not be compared to scores on the MEAP test. This year's M-STEP data will provide a baseline to which future year’s data can be compared. In addition to this being the first year for this M-STEP assessment, this is the first time students were given their tests online rather than the pencil and paper format students had used for the MEAP in the past.

How Did Bedford Do?
As a district, Bedford Public Schools exceeded the state average in 19 of the 20 tests our students took. Our 8th grade English and Language Arts portion was 0.1 percentage point shy of the state average.

As with any summative standardized test, this is one snapshot of how our students performed.  We use the data generated by this test, in conjuction with other student assessment data gathered throughout the year, to look for ways to improve. Our Balanced Assessment Team and school impovement efforts continuously focus on ways to improve the education for each of our students.

How Did MY Student Do?
Individual results were sent home with the students on Monday, December 21, 2015 along with the M-STEP Parent Guide. These results will look different than what you have seen in the past with MEAP results. A newly developed video is now available which summarizes M-STEP and walks viewers through how to read and interpret student scores within the M-STEP Parent Report. The video is available with or without Closed Caption. The M-STEP Parent Report Communication videos are available on the MDE M-STEP web page at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM55xZ-ZuNU
