MCA Testing Starts March 12

MCA testing

The statewide MCA testing window opens in early March and Washburn will start with the 10th grade reading test on March 12.  Testing takes approximately 2 hours and students are scheduled to test with their English class for a 3-period block.

11th graders will take the MCA math the week of April 16 and are scheduled for a 3-period block with their math class.

Students in Biology will take the MCA science the week of April 30 and are scheduled for a 3-period block with their science class.

It is important to note that because of changes at the Minnesota Department of Education, any student who has returned a signed Parent Assessment Refusal form will count as “Not Proficient” when compiling Washburn’s MCA-based achievement levels.  Any Parent Assessment Refusal form must be received the week prior to each test in order to be honored.
If you have any questions about this change in MDE policy, please call the Research, Evaluation, Assessment, and Accountability office at the Davis Center: 612-668-0570.
