Spring 2018 MCAS Test Administration Manuals for High Schools

The manuals posted on this page provide information necessary for principals and test administrators to administer the spring 2018 MCAS tests. One copy of the Principal's Administration Manual (PAM) is included in your school's shipment of test materials to be delivered on or around March 13, along with copies of Test Administrator's Manuals. Note that a second copy of the PAM is not included in the shipment for May—June. We encourage you to print additional copies from this web page, but if paper copies are needed, you may contact the MCAS Service Center at 800-737-5103.

In addition, manuals for the field tests and question tryouts are posted on the High School Administration Resources page in the "Resources for the Grade 10 ELA and Mathematics Field Tests and the High School STE Question Tryouts" section. Note that paper copies of the field test manuals are not being produced.
