Updated version of the nearly 20-year-old MCAS assessment Focuses on students critical thinking abilities, application of kn owledge, and ability to make connections between reading and writing Gives a clearer signal of readiness for the next grade level or coll ege and career Designed to be given on a computer (paper versions remain availa ble) First given in spring 2017 in grades 3-8 in English language arts & math Will eventually replace all older (legacy) MCAS tests in grades 3-10 Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 5 Computer-Based Testing Spring 2017: o 60% of all grades 3-8 students took the test on compu ters; >93% in grades 4 and 8 Phasing in computer-based testing by grade level o Spring 2017: Grades 4 and 8 English language arts (EL A) and math o Spring 2018: Grades 4-5 and 7-8 in ELA and math and grades 5 and 8 in science and tech/eng o Spring 2019: All tests in grades 3-8, grade 10 ELA and math Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 6 Equating of Computer- and Paper-Based Test For ms Ensure fairness regardless of test form (computer or paper) Applied in grades where schools could choose to administer compu ter-based or paper-based tests (grades 3, 5, 6, and 7) Used the results from parts of the test that are similar to help adju st the scoring on parts of the test that vary by format. Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 7 MCAS Achievement Levels Legacy Next-generation Advanced Exceeding Expectations Students at this level demonstrate a comprehensi ve and in-depth understanding of rigorous subject matter, and provide sophisticated solutions to co mplex problems. Meeting Expectations Proficient Students at this level demonstrate a solid underst anding of challenging subject matter and solve a wide variety of problems. Needs Improvement Students at this level demonstrate a partial under

standing of subject matter and solve some simple problems. A student who performed at this level exceeded grade-level expectations by demonstrating mastery of the subject matter. A student who performed at this level met grade-level expectations and is academically on track to succeed in the current grade in this subject. Partially Meeting Expectations A student who performed at this level partially met grade-level expectations in this subject. The school, in consultation with the student's parent/guardian, should consider whether the student needs additional academic assistance to succeed in this subject. Not Meeting Expectations A student who performed at this level did not meet grade-level expectations in this subject. The school, in consultation with Students at this level demonstrate a minimal und the student's parent/guardian, should determine the erstanding of subject matter and do not solve sim 7 Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education coordinated academic assistance and/or additional instruction ple problems.

The results do NOT mean that students learned more or less; the nextgeneration MCAS measures in a different way 2017 is the baseline year the first year of a new assessment and we e xpect scores to change over time, as occurred when the legacy MCAS debuted in 1998. Massachusetts educators set these standards, and they raised them in orde r to make sure our students will be college- and career- ready. In some grades and subjects (grade 4 English language arts and math, gra de 7 math), the percent of students Meeting Expectations will likely be si milar to the percent that were Proficient previously. In other grades and sub jects (grade 8 English language arts), the percent who are in Meeting Expect ations will likely be lower than the previous percent of Proficient students. Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 28 Looking Beyond Scores Scores can identify areas where students need academic sup port, but scores can also reflect non-academic barriers to learning. ESE and districts continue to work together to: o teach with poverty in mind, o build cultural competency, o address disproportionate and excessive student suspensions, o support homeless students, and o make schools safe for vulnerable students, such as LGBTQ students, recent immigrants, and others.
