Minnesota’s statewide assessments measure that curriculum and instruction in our schools are aligned to the academics standards, ensuring all students are being provided an equitable education. Statewide assessment results are just one tool to monitor that we are providing our students with the education that will ensure a strong workforce and knowledgeable citizens.

A statewide assessment is just one measure of your student’s achievement, but your student’s participation is important to understand how effectively the education is aligned to the academic standards.
• In Minnesota’s implementation of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, a student not participating in the statewide assessments will not receive an individual score and will be counted as “not proficient” for the purpose of school and district accountability, including opportunities for support and recognition.
• Students who receive a college-ready score on the high school MCA are not required to take a remedial, noncredit course at a Minnesota State college or university in the corresponding subject area, potentially saving the student time and money.
• Educators and policy makers use information from assessments to make decisions about resources and support provided.
• School performance results that are publicly released and used by families and communities, are negatively impacted if students do not participate in assessments.

The Minnesota Compehensive Assessments are given annually in grades 3-8 and high school in reading and mathematics and given annually in grades, 5, 8 and high school in science.The testing window runs from March to May. A complete testing calendar will be available each year on the assessment page of the district website. For additional information see the parent/guardian guide and refusal for student participation in statewide testing in the appendix or on the website. Each summer, individual student reports are sent to the school and are provided to families no later than fall conferences.
