Test scores for Michigan’s students showed some improvements, but declines in crucial subjects.
The state’s M-STEP scores were released Tuesday. The M-STEP tests third through eighth and eleventh grade students in various subjects, including math, social studies and English language arts.
Scores for math and social studies were up – but fewer students were proficient in English language arts than last year.
The state shouldn’t be satisfied, even where there was progress, said The Education Trust Midwest’s Director of Public Engagement, Brian Gutman.
