South Dakota Report Card

The South Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) measures students’ master of the South Dakota State Academic Standards.  The Report Card represents the scores of students who were continuously enrolled in a single district from Oct. 1 to the last day of the testing window.  The Assessment Report represents the scores of all students in a district or school – not just those who completed the full academic year.
