The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) testing scores are out for 2017. Overall, the scores are similar to last year, with math scores down slightly for some grade levels, remaining constant for others and reading scores mostly unchanged. Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius says it’s “frustrating to see test scores slowly increasing over time, but there’s more to providing a student with well-rounded education than can be seen in a test.” For specifics on how students fared in different districts throughout the state, you can find the Minnesota Report Card here.
MNN’s Scott Peterson spoke with Cassellius about the results. You can hear a part of that interview below.
