GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Kids are taking a new kind of tests that’s unlike anything most people saw in school.
The M-STEP replaces the old MEAP test and is administered to children in fourth grade. It’s designed to drill deeper into what kids know and what they don’t know, which allows educators to strategize to help fill that gap. The test is adjusted for the new technology age. It is given on a computer where kids must drag and drop using the mouse, and includes multi-stage questions.
Maranda brought together educators and community leaders at the Kent Intermediate School District to take a sample portion of the test. See the results on a special edition of “Maranda Where You Live” on Tuesday, February 23, at 4:30 p.m. on WOTV 4 Women.
