Alignment to M-STEP

If you’re familiar with the M-STEP, you’ll be very comfortable using the Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments. They are aligned to Michigan academic standards for English language arts/literacy and math, and include the same item types and tools as the M-STEP. The interim assessments also use the same online testing platform and administration portal as the M-STEP.

Schools that select the Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments will also have access to the new Tools for Teachers—a website that features lessons and activities created by educators to save time, enhance instruction, and prepare students for college or a career.
