Testing & Assessment

As we approach MCA testing within our schools, parents/guardians will receive letters giving information on dates for testing. Letters will either be mailed home or sent home with the student depending on the building.

To view specific testing building dates, please use the Testing Calendar link! As building testing schedules are finalized, they will be posted.

Assessment Program Objectives

  1. To measure the effectiveness of the district's curriculum in instructing toward the academic standards.
  2. To ensure that all St. Michael-Albertville students leave high school with sound college and career readiness skills.
