Schedules & Start Times
Your child will be participating in the Science portion of the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA III).
Science MCA’s will be administered for 8th Grade students only on May 3rd & 4th. The purpose of these tests is to measure student achievement in this area, and determine how well our curriculum and instruction is aligned to state standards. This assessment is a requirement of the Minnesota Department of Education and given annually in grade 8.
Please make every effort to have your child in school and on time during these testing days. Students not in school during these times will need to make up the test at a later date. A good night’s sleep and adequate breakfast is highly encouraged during these days. Encourage your child to do their very best throughout the assessments. Reminders will be sent out closer to the testing dates. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this assessment.
