Mississippi Science Test (MST2) Grades 5 & 8
The Mississippi Science Test, Second Edition (MST2) is an assessment administered to students in grades 5 and 8 and measures student achievement in science based upon the 2010 Mississippi Science Framework. The MST2 is comprised of test questions of varying degrees of difficulty that are aligned to the competencies and objectives in the framework and the academic performance level descriptors.  Mississippi educators were involved with the development of the curriculum frameworks and items on the assessments.  In addition to being used for State accountability purposes in these grades, the MST2 is designed to allow Mississippi to be in full compliance with the requirements of the federal legislation of the Every Student Succeeds Act. The results of the assessments will provide information that will be used for the purpose of improving student achievement.
