MTAS (MTA and Alternative Access)

The Minnesota Test of Academic Skills (MTAS) is an alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. It is part of the Minnesota assessment program. The MTAS measures reading, mathematics, and science skills that are linked to the general education curriculum. These skills represent high expectations for students with significant cognitive disabilities, but tasks to measure these skills are considerably less difficult than the items on the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA).

  • Pre-ACT and PSAT: October 20
  • MTAS Reading, Math and Science: March 28-April 1 and April 4-8
  • ACT: April 19
  • MCAs:
    • Math: April 26-29
    • Reading: April 26-29
    • Science: May 2-6

MCA Results

Students receive last year's MCA results/scores by fall conferences. Reports are sent home with students.
