Student Assessments & Information

Southfield Public Schools will use a variety of assessments this year, such as i-Ready (K-8), PSAT & SAT (8-12), Running Records for reading, Michigan Literacy Progress Profile (MLPP), locally designed assessments, and M-STEP to guide core-instruction. SPS teachers use the data from these assessments to develop productive instructional plans, design small learning groups, and identify areas of student strength and opportunity for support.  We have also added some helpful parent tips, videos and family guidance documents below to assist parents in preparing their children for assessments at home.  Thank you for your support of our learners as well as our educators.
