Students are curious and anxious about the pandemic. Its omnipresence in the media and its tangible effect on daily life create a learning opportunity. Teachers can take advantage of that opportunity to develop lessons that touch on a range of subjects and skills.

We have a highly curated series of resources covering Lessons and Activities, General Resources and Science Based content to help our students better understand COVID-19.

HS Science MCAS Tests

Are we confused yet?

By Joan Reissman, MCAS Maven

If you are a science teacher, you know all about the different science tests. But if you’re a student or parent, you may be wondering about them. You know that the new MCAS 2.0 in English and math have been redesigned to meet more demanding standards of college and career readiness. But what about science?

This year was the first year for computer based MCAS tests in math and English for high school. The science tests are still paper-based, but there will be some field tests of computer-based Biology and Introductory Physics. Parents and students may have some questions. What standards will be tested? What test or tests are required for graduation? What choices do students have?
