About the test
In 2014-2015 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 5, 8, 11, and 12 in Science. The Dakota STEP is 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 goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
