Welcome to MWHS!
MCA 2019 Testing
At MWHS students will be testing in grade 8 in reading, math and science, grade 10 reading, grade 11 math and students enrolled in H.S. Biology (including AP who have not already taken the MCA Science test). Students will have test information sessions in Advisory and Homeroom on April 15 & 16 (see Schoology calendar for specific grades/dates).
A modification has been made in the structure and set up for student testing at the high school this year. All students will be taking their MCA test in the mornings on the designated test dates, beginning at 7:41am. Students will also all be testing in a classroom with a staff/teacher proctor that they know and have at that grade level with most rooms having 18-22 students for testing. Please refer to the chart below, for each of the three test dates, to see where your student should be reporting on the date of their MCA Test.
- There will be a modified daily schedule for April 18-25, but it will be a regular school day on May 2. 8th graders will be testing in their assigned test rooms hours 1-3 for their MCA Science Test on May 2.
- Buses/Transportation will run on its regular schedule on test days, even with classes starting after MCA Testing at 9:41am.
- For students who are not taking an MCA Test, but arrive to school anytime prior to 9:41, you will be in the Theater/Cafeteria for a silent study period until the start of the regular school day at 9:41am. You will not be allowed to go to a teacher's classroom for questions/help, they will be MCA test proctoring and due to test security can not be interrupted.
For one stop access to all MCA related questions and information, both parents and students can go to the MWHS Resources and Information course in Schoology. There you will find a folder with MCA Test Prep Materials that has everything from test session assignments, test specifications, and online item samplers and tutorials. As always we would encourage students to get a good sleep night before their testing and to eat a good breakfast and lunch that day.
For any MCA testing related questions, parents and students can contact Jennifer Bormes at (952) 491-8121 email@example.com
