Reading and math MCA-II/MCA-III results were released by the state in late September. For the first time in six years, Minneapolis Public Schools has made progress in narrowing the achievement gap between students of color and white students. Significant across-the-board gains were made in reading for American Indian, African American, Asian and Hispanic students. While smaller, the gap was also narrowed for all groups except American Indian students in math.
Each school received information regarding our performance in comparison to the district and state (see below). The scores reflect what percent of our student met or exceeded the MCA (Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment) standards.
Clearly our reading scores were significantly higher than our math scores which may be attributed to having a Literacy Coach to provide support to the classroom teachers.
The math scores for students across the state declined. The test that was administered was more rigorous and ELL students who resided in the state more than a year were required to take the regular test instead of a modified version. Ultimately, we will continue to focus on math and literacy with the goal of ensuring all students reach their fullest potential.
