About the Tests

  • In 2008-2009 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science.
  • The Dakota STEP is based on the Stanford 10, a national norm-referenced test. It is also standards-based, which means it is aligned to South Dakota's educational standards and measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state. The standards-based Dakota STEP results are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
  • The standards-based results for reading and math are displayed in GreatSchools profiles. The results displayed are for all grades combined for each subject. The results reflect the performance of students enrolled for the full academic year.
  • The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
