Given the high-stakes nature of the MCAS, the State Department of Education requires that we provide students with an extremely strict testing environment.  For students, this means:

  • Headphones, iPods, or electronic devices may not be used at any time during the testing period.  All cell phones will be collected by test proctors before the start of the exam and returned to the student at the end of the exam period.  No exceptions.  Students may bring books and school work to do should they complete the exam prior to the end of the testing period.
  • Students must be in their assigned exam room on time no later than 8 a.m.

 

Passing the MCAS Exam is a high school graduation requirement. You can help your son or daughter prepare for this state-wide assessment by reinforcing the importance of:

  • Giving your best effort on each test question
  • Being on time
  • Getting a good night’s sleep and eating breakfast

 

Students not taking the Grade 10 English Language Arts MCAS Exam (primarily grades 9, 11, and 12) must report to their first class of the day by 11:15 a.m. Students not taking the Grade 10 Math MCAS Exam (primarily grades 9, 11, and 12) must report to their first class of the day by 10:38 a.m.
