Dakota STEP results online

School districts may use the individual student assessment report found on this website to deliver results to parents. These reports must be delivered to parents within 30 calendar days of the beginning of the school term.

This site requires a username/password. If your district needs that information, please contact Gay Pickner at the Department of Education, (605) 773-3247. The username/password will be given only to the district superintendent and testing coordinator.
