The Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) are annual tests used to measure a student's mastery of the state's grade-level academic standards contained in the Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs).
Which Grades and Subjects?
Students in grades 3 through 8 are assessed in reading and math, in grades 4 and 7 in writing, and in grades 5 and 8 in science.
How is it Scored?
A student's performance on the reading, math and science MSP is reported using scale scores. Scale scores are three-digit numbers that are used to place the student into one of four levels: Advanced (Level 4), Proficient (Level 3), Basic (Level 2) and Below Basic (Level 1). The goal is for all students to meet or exceed standards (at or above Level 3).
