Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments are here!

It's testing season in Minnesota. Students will be taking both the on-line reading and math tests in late April and early May. To prepare your child for the tests, do the following:

1. visit http://pearsonaccessnext.com/

2. Click on "Minnesota"

3. Click on "student resources"

4. Click on "on-line samplers"

The on-line test will give children the opportunity to see how the test will look, how to scroll up and down to read the text and answer questions, how to manipulate the enhanced questions, what the questions may be like, and more.

Please email me if you have any questions.
