    January-March, 2024    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.  If you have questions about WIDA or ACCESS testing, please contact Belinda Bergren at the Elementary School.

    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 received those results by October 1st each year.  Below are resources for you to better understand what the results mean for your student.
