MiLearn Agreements Deployed Statewide
MDE’s MiLearn system provides an easy and convenient method for Parents, Students, and Educators to access student test scores electronically using the Student Information System (SIS) portal. Test scores from multiple assessments including M-STEP, WIDA, and MiAccess, and soon-to-include ELMBA, are able to be reviewed electronically. Now that MiLearn is supported through all 5 major SISs in the state (Infinite Campus, MISTAR-Q, PowerSchool, Skyward, and Synergy), we have been asked to enable the MiLearn agreement for any districts that didn’t already have it available for authorizing in the MiDataHub cockpit. 

Electronically signing the agreement is the first step in the process of using MiLearn. For more information, please see the MiLearn page in our Product Catalog or reach out directly to Tim Hall via email at
Acadience Data Load
A recent update was released in MiDataHub to correct a known issue with importing Acadience results into your MiDataHub. The documentation for both exporting results directly from Acadience and configuring the inbound integration in the MiDataHub cockpit are found below and at our corresponding product catalog page for the Acadience import:

If you have any questions or need any assistance with this please don’t hesitate reaching out to us by sending an email to the support team at
How do LEAs/PSAs use the MSB?
The majority of Intermediate School Districts (ISDs) have now identified a MiStrategyBank ISD lead.

We encourage you to reach out to your ISD for support with creating MiStrategyBank user accounts for district and building staff as well as for support when using the MiStrategyBank application.

Additional support and documentation for using the MiStategyBank, such as user roles, and “how-to” documents, are available at
Users from LEAs, PSAs, and ISDs are encouraged to join us for our upcoming training session listed below!

Please join us for a Virtual MiStrategyBank Overview Training
