M-STEP State Testing

 

Let's M-Step!

Our students will take the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress on May 8th and May 15th, both all morning. This year, 3rd graders will take a test in Math and ELA. There are several ways to can help your child do their best on the test.

Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast

Many teachers report that students who don't do well on tests haven't gotten enough sleep, and haven't eaten breakfast on the morning of the test. Doing both of these things will ensure that your child is working at full capacity (Narang, 2008).

Remain positive

Staying calm will help your child stay calm. If she gets nervous about the test or is likely to experience anxiety during the test, help her practice some relaxation techniques that she can try once she's taking the test (Narang, 2008).
