MCAS/EPP Test Information
In school year 2019-2020, there will be one opportunity for districts to offer students with Educational Proficiency Plans the optional MCAS/EPP Test for mathematics. The one time period will be April 27–May 8, 2020. There will be no administration of an MCAS/EPP Test for English Language Arts (ELA), however schools and districts will be able to use the March 2020 ELA MCAS retest as an assessment option for EPP purposes.
During time sensitive periods, materials related to the mathematics MCAS/EPP Test will be posted in each high school's MCAS EPP DropBox, accessible via the Security Portal's DropBox Central. High school principals (or their designee) who need access to this information should get assigned to their school's MCAS EPP DropBox role by their district's Directory Administrator. That DropBox will be used by the Department to post the mathematics MCAS/EPP Test related documents that for security reasons cannot be posted to this web page. If you have questions on this, contact your Directory Administrator, email email@example.com , or call 781-338-3010.
The Test Administrator Manual and the Principal's Instructions and Assurances Form will be posted below in early spring 2020 and also in the MCAS EPP DropBox. Forms that will be posted only in the MCAS EPP DropBox include the test forms (April 13–May 8, 2020) and the scoring related information (available May 11–20, 2020).
For more information on EPP's, see the EPP main page.
