The Minnesota Department of Education cancelled all 2020 MCA tests due to Minnesota Distance Learning. All other AHS tests were cancelled for Spring 2020.
January-March, 2021 English Learners are tested--generally English is not these students' first or home language. WIDA is the name of the agency that supports and manages the federally required ACCESS 2.0 Assessments. They are a series of 4 tests to measure students' proficiency in reading, writing, listening and speaking. These tests are scheduled individually. These tests were completed before Minnesota Distance Learning.

Individual Student Results and Resources
Statewide assessments are a part of each district or school’s comprehensive, balanced assessment system. They reflect one piece of information our district uses to evaluate the content students engage with in school. We encourage parents and families to use these resources alongside the information you receive from your child’s school and teachers.
Each year individual results are mailed to students parents who participated in MCA testing the year before. You should have recieved those results by October 1st. Below are resources for you to better understand what the results mean for your student.
