Office of Educational Assessment and Accounability (OEAA)

Grades K - 12

Michigan has an innovative and comprehensive system of assessments to measure student achievement in learning our state content standards. These standards outline what educators believe students should know and be able to do in certain subjects and grade levels to be career and/or college-ready upon high school graduation. In Michigan, like in other states, a sampling of schools also participates in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in grades 4, 8, and 12.

The Michigan summative assessments are required under the Michigan State School Aid ACT and/or the Federal Every Student Succeeds ACT (ESSA).
