MCA Samplers and Practice Materials

Tutorials and samplers are provided to help teachers and students become familiar with the format and type of content included in the MCAs. The new Mathematics MCA in grades 3–8 becomes operational in 2011 and will be administered online.

We strongly encourage you to have your child go through the tutorial for the new online Math MCA test to ensure they are familiar with the testing tools.

Then we recommend taking the online math test so that your child can practice the actual online testing format.

Pearson Access - MCA Tutorials & Samplers
This is the PearsonAccess: Item Samplers and Tutorials website. From this website you can select the Student Tutorials tab, and then click on Mathematics MCA (grades 5-8). We recommend they watch this tutorial which is about 6 minutes long.

Next select the Item Samplers tab and then the appropriate sampler subject and level. It will guide you through the process to download an application which allows your child to complete an online sampler. All of our students will be taking the online math test and 8th graders will take the online science test.
