Spring, Grades 9, 10 & 11

The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) are state tests in reading, math & science developed to measure student achievement on the state standards in those content areas.  These tests are required by federal law to be given to all public school students in grades 3 – 8 for reading and math, one grade level in high school for reading and math, and one grade each at the elementary, middle and high school levels for science.  Minnesota gives the high school reading test at grade 10, the high school math test at grade 11 and the science tests at grades 5, 8 and when students finish high school biology. Results are used to report school and district progress on the state standards.  Official results are made available about 6 weeks after the school year. More information about the MCA.
