Hi Everyone -
Below, you will find MCAS documents for 2018-2019 test sessions. As they are released, they will be added here.
- The TAM (TEST ADMINISTRATOR’S MANUAL) contains the information and scripts for specific test sessions. It is updated periodically. This is the document the MCAS Test Proctors (teachers who lead the testing session) should be familiar with - a single read through should be sufficient.
- The PAM (PRINCIPAL'S ADMINISTRATION MANUAL) is here as an "FYI" on what goes into preparing an MCAS test session. You do not have to read it, but if you're interested, there are a lot of considerations you'd never think of.
- The MCAS Test Security Requirements - another "FYI" document, but it would be beneficial to read through this document as breaches to MCAS security could have serious consequences.
The 2017-2018 MCAS Video is still our basic training for the Lowell High School MCAS sessions. A new one is in development as the Grade 10 Computer-Based Tests (CBT) will be a new challenge to our staff and students.
Thank you for all you do to make the test sessions run smoothly. It's 100% understood how much effort you put into preparing your students to achieve competency on these tests, and it's sincerely appreciated.
