Description

The K-12 Student Assessments - Standard data contains student-level assessment data from the K-12 environment. Available datasets reflect information about the standard assessments which are (typically) required to be taken by Michigan students to capture the performance of the K-12 educational system. Each record (row) in the dataset is a student's assessment scores for a single year. Michigan Education Assessment Program (MEAP) was administered in the Fall from 2007 to 2013. Michigan Merit Exam (MME) was administered in the Spring from 2008 to 2014. Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) has been administered in the Spring from 2015 to 2019. The current standard assessment is the M-STEP, which was predated by the MEAP and MME.

Number of Individuals with Records

We have assessment records for over 2.5 million students in total. With regards to each specific assessment, we have records for 1.4 million students that were assessed using the M-STEP, 800 thousand students that were assessed using the MME, and 1.6 million students that were assessed using the MEAP.

Grades Assessments are Administered

The M-STEP was administered to students in the 3rd-8th grade,11th grade, and a few 12th graders. The MME was administered to students in the 11th grade and a few 12th graders. The MEAP was administed to students in the 3rd-9th grade.

Subject Test Key Variables

Multiple variables are associated with each subject test, and the main one is the scaled score. It is important to note that subject test scores are scaled by grade, so different grade's scaled scores cannot be compared. There is a variable that indicates whether the student was proficient on that portion of the assessment. Another variable provides more nuanced information on the performance level of the student using a scale made up of categories such as: "Advanced", "Advanced Proficient", and "Partially Proficient".
