Spring 2016 State Testing Information

On November 17th, the Massachusetts Board of Education voted to move away from the current MCAS and to develop a MCAS 2.0 exam that will be built off of the current PARCC assessment. As the state transitions to this new exam, all districts that administered PARCC last year will continue to give the PARCC assessment this spring. The MCAS will continue to be given for the Grade 5,8, and high school Science/Technology/Engineering tests and the Grade 10 ELA and Mathematics assessments.
