Affirming Student Names on MCAs

Affirming Student Names on MCAs

There is a new process to allow students to have their preferred name visible within the Online MCA testing platform for those who have their preferred name listed in Campus, under the field "nickname." For some students, this is a very important aspect of respecting their identity and we would like to bring this practice into testing. For this testing year, MCA tests can have the preferred name, as listed in Campus, appear on testing tickets and in the testing app upon request. 

  • If you work with students who have a nickname in Campus that they want used as their preferred name for Online MCA testing, fill out this Google Form for them, or if it's developmentally appropriate, have the students fill it out for themselves.

  • Please keep in mind that these are not new preferred name requests to enter into Campus. This request will only inform Jessica Lang, SPPS District Test Coordinator, who wants their preferred name visible to them during Online MCA testing. Jessica will manually enter the "nickname" field into the MCA testing system upon request. See the flyer for more details
