SPC Assessment Update
MCA-III State Standardized Test: Our 3-8 scholars participate in the MCA-III test for math and reading every spring. The purpose of MCA-III reading and math tests is to measure achievement and proficiency of the Minnesota Academic Standards and measure academic progress of students over time. It also allows us to reflect on how well we are serving our students compared to similar neighborhood schools.
