About the tests
Minnesota students in third through eighth grade take the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) in reading and math. In addition 10th-graders take a reading test and 11th-graders take a math test. Students need not make a certain score to go on to the next grade.

Private schools can choose whether to test their students. They are not required to report scores and demographic data.

Low-income: Percent of test-takers eligible for free or reduced lunch program.

Mobile: Test-takers new to the school since Oct. 1 of the school year.
