Testing Changes for 2019-20

Parent Opt Out forms for Testing will continue to be offered in the Student Handbook. Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) also has other languages available for Testing Opt Out.  They include Arabic, Chinese, Hmong, Karen, Khmer, Laotian, Oromo, Russian, Somali, Spanish, and Vietnamese.  MDE also has Test Preparation Tips in these languages, FAQ Why Test Results Matter in these languages, ACCESS/MCA/MTAS Parent Fact Sheets in these languages, and other information regarding testing.

The Benchmark Reports are available and have a new look to them this year.  Staff can contact the District Assessment Coordinator to get a copy of their grade level and content area.  They are available for Reading, Math, and Science.

All of MN MCA and MTAS testing will be administered through Pearson Access Next as it was this past school year.  PANext is working on some updates and changes, so while things will be the same, there will hopefully be some new improvements for this school year.
