MIPI+ Information and/or resources

  • Interested in learning more about the MIPI+ click this link.
  • Please discuss with your administrator if you are interested in using this assessment tool in your classroom.

ADMINISTERING THE MIPI:

STEP 1: Print off a PDF version of the assessment for your students

  • Choose the version of the MIPI you would like to use in your classroom. ex. Grade 6 students write the Grade 6 MIPI. All printable PDF’s can be found in the following linked folder. Please ensure you select the correct school year.

STEP 2: Administer the Assessment

  • Choose a Class Code (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H) for your class. If you have more than one class per grade, please assign a different letter to each participating class. 
  • Engage students in a conversation around the purpose of the MIPI. The following message might be helpful. “The purpose of this assessment is to help me know what you know and what you don’t know so I know what support you need in order to move forward. Don’t randomly guess at questions. If you guess and happen to get it right, I won’t know you need help. I want you to try every question. Showing your thinking in the booklet will help me understand how you solved the questions and where you might need help.”
  • Give a printed copy of the assessment and the Class Code to students.

STEP 3: Students enter their assessment data into a Google Form

  • Students enter their answers into the Google form, using the appropriate link listed in the table below. Do not make a copy of the google forms!
  • Students will be required to enter their name, school, and class code (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, or H).  Class codes are determined at the school level.  If you have more than one class per grade, please assign a different letter to each participating class.

*Important Note:

The links to the forms provided in the previous table are only to be used with students who are writing the MIPI for their grade level at the beginning of the school year.  If you are using this assessment to re-assess students throughout the year, please add “end” to the end of the links. For example, you assessed your grade 2 students at the beginning of the school year and entered the results at http://rebrand.ly/mipi2. You want to reassess one of your students using the same Grade 2 MIPI. You will enter the results at http://rebrand.ly/mipi2end 

STEP 4: Analyze the data

  • Data is automatically analyzed as soon as students enter their answers into the google form. You do not need to wait until all students have completed the assessment to explore your data. Find your links here.
  • When you open the analysis document for the first time, you must follow the instructions under “Important Note” before doing anything else.
  • Make sure to change the year to the correct year!

Best Practice Recommendations

  • Our recommended assessment time is the first 5 weeks of the school year.  This allows opportunities for teachers to adjust plans to meet the differentiated needs of their class or students. (Please ensure that all students in grades 2-10 have completed the MIPI assessment by September 30th.)
  • Students typically complete the full assessment between 45 – 60 minutes.
  • The assessments are designed to be used without a calculator.
  • Students may use manipulatives.
  • Teachers are encouraged to follow their own classroom assessment practices and routines.  
  • Students may write their work on the printed version of the exam.
  • We recommend that students complete the paper assessment first, then input their results into the Google form.
  • The teacher may choose to enter the data for students in grade 2 or 3.
