MCA schedule and information

Students in 3rd-5th grade participate in statewide testing each Spring.  JJ Hill's testing coordinator is Holly Souza. 

MCAs are the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments, standardized tests of academic skills. 3rd-5th graders complete math and reading assessments.  5th graders also take a science test. MCAs are completed on iPads.

Reading: 4/16 and 4/17 9:00-10:30 am

Math: 4/24 and 4/25 9:00-10:30 am

Science: 4/30 9:00-10:00 am

It is important that children get a good night’s rest and eat a healthy breakfast.  

Our goal is for our students to know that a standardized test is one metric of a student’s understanding.  As a Montessori school, we value the whole child.  Strengths and growth are demonstrated in many ways.
