MCA Testing Suspended Tuesday/Resuming Wednesday (PDF - 112.63 KB)

The Minnesota Department of Education suspended MCA testing starting Tuesday (4/22) until the vendor (Pearson) resolved the technical problems that have plagued their system since testing began.  Problems experienced in BHM were less severe than in many districts, but all schools have experienced some problems.  MDE announced Tuesday afternoon that they were satisfied with Pearson's remedies and that testing could begin again on Wednesday (4/23).  The district's testing calendar will be updated as soon reflecting scheduling adjustments as a result of Tuesday's disruption.

 

Most MCA testing in math, reading and science is scheduled for April-May.  However, BHS high school students who completed Biology during 1st term during 2014-15 were tested in science during March.  This document will be updated weekly to provide parents with an overview of when their students are scheduled to be tested in reading, math and science.
