About MI Assessments Lists
District staff and stakeholders should be aware that the default determinant of retention, as outlined in legislation (MCL: 380.1280f), is the third-grade state level English Language Arts assessment. This assessment measures the entire range of English Language Arts academic standards - reading, writing, listening, and language. Thus, districts are strongly advised to engage in a careful review of the demands of the state assessment, and to bear these demands in mind when selecting and designing local assessment systems.
