Student Assessment Results Released to Cedar Springs Public Schools Families


Results Reflect Transition to MI Higher Standards

Families across Cedar Springs Public Schools this week are beginning to receive their students’ scores on the 2014-15 statewide assessment, known as M-STEP.

We are working to ensure parents and families know scores reflect both a new assessment and a major transition to higher standards.

The next few years will require significant transitions for students, families and educators, as the adjustment to higher standards and the M-STEP continues.

Students are adjusting to the new form of tests.  Expectations are higher, tests are challenging and even the way that tests are taken  – online – is new to some students.  Results from the 2014-2015 school year will set a new baseline for measuring student progress on this challenging test.  These results are important for understanding student learning moving forward.

Across Michigan, districts are facing the same challenges we are.  We know that it is important to set high expectations for our students and all of our teachers are working every day to help our students meet and exceed these expectations.  These kinds of changes – to higher standards and challenging tests – take time.  We appreciate parents being our partners in making sure that our students are getting the tools and support that they need to be successful, in and out of school.
