South Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (DSTEP)

South Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (DSTEP) is the assessment system for accountability in South Dakota schools. DSTEPs’ basic platform assesses South Dakota Content Standards in Reading, Mathematics, and Science. DSTEP is given at Grades 3-8 and 11.

Merit’s language arts and math software programs correlate to the South Dakota Content Standards and can help students prepare for the Stanford 10 Abbreviated test. The content and format of Merit’s programs can help students develop and strengthen their test-taking skills as well as their reading, writing and math skills.

Merit reading software has been proven -- through rigorous, scientifically based research -- to increase both student reading comprehension and standardized test scores. Merit research study findings reveal that education software is an effective tool to improve test scores and academic performance.
