Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs)

The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) are state tests in mathematics, reading and science that meet the requirements of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). They are given every year to measure student performance against the Minnesota Academic Standards that specify what students in a particular grade should know and do. (Adapted from Minnesota Department of Education)

The Minnesota Department of Education has published information about testing specifically for parents, at http://education.state.mn.us/MDE/JustParent/TestReq/index.html.

If you have questions about testing in the district, please refer to the Testing & Assessment page or contact District Assessment Coordinator Hope Langston.
