MCAP (State Testing)

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that states administer annual statewide assessments to all students in English Language Arts/Literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and an annual English language proficiency assessment for all English learners. Maryland also provides alternate assessments for those students who require this accommodation.
