Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System

MCAS/EPP Mathematics Testing Schedule

The Department offers one testing opportunity annually for students to participate in an MCAS/EPP Mathematics test as an assessment option for Educational Proficiency Plan (EPP) purposes. For ELA, students may participate in the March retest for EPP purposes (but not the November ELA retest). Alternatively, districts may choose to meet the assessment requirement of the EPP through a local assessment.

Below is the schedule for the MCAS/EPP Mathematics test.
