During the week of March 2nd high schools across the State of Michigan will be administering the ACT and WorkKeys Tests to all Juniors.  Likewise, during the weeks of May 18th high schools across the State of Michigan will be administering the M-STEP Test to all Juniors.  This test is required of Juniors and many of you would formerly recognize it as the Michigan Merit Exam.  Juniors in our state take the ACT and  WorkKeys Tests, these are truly high stakes tests for a number of reasons.  The most appealing aspect of these tests is the fact that it includes the national ACT test.  This means that all students can take the ACT test at the State’s expense; the scores will assist students in applying for college/post-secondary programs.

This year is the first time Juniors will take the M-STEP test.  This test is an interim test that will be given in 2015.  This test will include a Science, Social Studies, Computer Adaptive English Language Arts and a Mathematics Computer Adaptive Test.

The administration of these tests does require us to alter our school schedule for these weeks.  The testing information and schedule follows.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but it is the most practical approach for us to utilize.  We have also included additional information specific to Juniors, but others will find it helpful in understanding the process involved.

Please review this information and if there are any questions feel free to contact me.  We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to support our attempts to create a successful testing environment for our students.  Thanks again.
