Results from MCAS

State MCAS exams provide a snapshot of student performance in grades 3 and 4. While this is helpful data, it is just one measure among many. MCAS reports rate students’ performance as: Exceeding Expectations, Meeting Expectations, Partially Meeting Expectations, or Not Meeting Expectations. The state piloted a new version of the test in 2017 and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education was clear that the cut off for meeting expectations is more rigorous than it has been in the past.

MCAS Results Spring 2019 

Percentage of Students Meeting or Exceeding Expectations

We are working to improve students’ writing with a new program (Units of Study) developed at Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. We have already seen substantial gains in the volume of their writing.
