Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) Info

Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) Info

The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) state tests for reading, math, and science are used to meet federal and state legislative requirements. The tests are given each year to measure student performance relative to the Minnesota Academic Standards. The state standards determine what students in a particular grade should know and be able to do.

At River Grove, reading and math tests are administered in grades 3 through 6 grade; grade 5 will also take the science test. All tests are administered online only and must be taken on-campus (not from home). Students do not pass or fail the MCA; instead they receive a score that falls in one of four achievement levels–Does Not Meet the Standards, Partially Meets the Standards, Meets the Standards, and Exceeds the Standards.

Tests will be administered this spring and will take place at school during the regular school day. Parents/guardians have a right to not have their student participate in state-required standardized assessments. Minnesota Statutes require the department to provide information about statewide assessments to parents/guardians and include a form to complete if they refuse to have their student participate.

Please fill out a separate form for each child. Please read the Parent Guardian Guide and Refusal for Student Participation in Statewide Testing .pdf form then complete this online form (or complete and turn in the .pdf form if you prefer).

If you have questions regarding state testing, please contact Drew Goodson, School Director.
