MCA Testing for Grades 3, 4 & 5

In late April, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade students attending school in-person will be required to take the MCA reading and math tests. Additionally, in-person 5th graders will take the science test.  Distance learning families have the option of sending their students to school to complete the tests.  

The MCA tests for in-person students will be administered over the course of a few weeks. The MCAs for distance learners who opt to come in will be administered over two days for 3rd & 4th grade; three days for 5th grade.
