Based on the recently-released Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, or M-STEP, the students at Northville Public Schools continue to demonstrate high levels of proficiency in all areas being assessed. In fact, we are seeing more students at the advanced level, as it outpaces the number of students who are proficient.
Students take the M-STEP in grades three through seven (Math, Reading, Science and Social Studies) and eleventh (Science and Social Studies). Eighth, ninth, tenth and eleventh graders take PSAT as their state assessment. M-STEP is our state’s standardized test that measures what students know and are able to do in relation to Michigan’s academic standards. M-STEP results are one of several ways student progress is measured, including local assessments like NWEA, classroom work and report cards. To learn more about the M-STEP, visit the M-STEP website.
