Michigan Linked Educational Assessment Reporting Network (MiLearn)

Student Assessment Reporting

Ferndale Schools has partnered with The Michigan Department of Education, Division of Accountability Services to provide a new service called the Michigan Linked Educational Assessment Reporting Network (MiLearn).  This innovative project is legislatively funded and delivers state assessment data to students, parents, and educators in a more timely and dynamic manner.  It uses your district’s Student Information Systems to provide signed-in users access to reports. 

Here’s how it works.  Once a parent, student, or educator has logged into MISTAR, just look for the State Assessment Data button. Once you click it, you will be granted access to the state assessment reports available to you based on your role (parent, student, or educator) and the assessment results available (spring 2015 and/or spring 2016). 

Ferndale Schools is proud to be partnering with the Michigan Department of Education as part of this project.  Bringing state assessment data to parents, students and educators in an electronic format and through MISTAR is a major enhancement in getting assessment data out quicker and more efficiently.

Login to MISTAR parent/student/teacher portal > click on State Assessment Data in the School Links Content Area.
