Storm threat prompts Massachusetts to postpone MCAS test on Tuesday

In anticipation of severe weather that may result in numerous school closings and delayed openings tomorrow, Tuesday, March 19 (which is the date scheduled for the MCAS ELA Composition test), the Massachusetts Department of Education has decided to postpone the administration of the MCAS ELA Composition test until Monday, March 25.

All schools must administer the ELA Composition test to students in grades 4, 7, and 10 on Monday, March 25, including schools that are not affected by the weather. We realize that this change may be disruptive for some schools, but for security reasons it is critical that all schools administer the ELA Composition on the same day.

Even schools that are unaffected by the storm must wait until Monday, March 25, to administer the test.
