In October, we released the first results of the next-generation MCAS in English language arts and mathematics in grades 3-8. These results, from tests students took in spring 2017, are a new baseline for students, schools, and districts as we move to a test that measures student learning differently and focuses on students' readiness for the next grade level.
Several resources are available to help understand the assessment and the results, including the interactive Parents' Guide to the MCAS and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Other resources are posted on our MCAS parents page.
General questions about MCAS results and supplemental resources can be directed to the Office of Student Assessment at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 781-338-3625. Parents with specific questions about their student's results may wish to check in with their child's teacher for more information.
