MCAS Performance Appeals

MCAS Performance Appeals Workshop

Since 2003, nearly 3,000 MCAS Performance Appeals have been awarded in mathematics and English language arts to public high school students in Massachusetts through the MCAS Performance Appeals process. This provides students who are unable to pass the Grade 10 Math or English MCAS exams an opportunity to have their English and/or math GPAs and coursework reviewed by a board of high school educators to determine whether he or she meets the passing standard. To assist secondary school faculty members in learning about the filing process, the Department of Education will be offering an MCAS Performance Appeals workshop. I encourage you to send teams of up to 3 educators per district. The workshop will held on Monday, December 11th, from 1-3 p.m., at the Department of Education in Malden. To register, please email mcasappeals@doe.mass.edu, with workshop participant names and titles, and your high school and city or town.
