What is MCAP?
The Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP) provides information to educators, parents, and the public on student progress towards proficiency on the Maryland College and Career Ready Standards.


What are we testing?
The Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP) will measure how well students performed in content presented during the school year (2021-2022). Students will take the assessment for the grade or course in which they are enrolled when the assessment takes place. For example: a current 6th grader will take the 6th grade English Language Arts/ Literacy (ELA/L) and Mathematics test, and a current 8th grader would take the 8th grade ELA and Math test, unless they are enrolled in Algebra 1, Geometry, or Algebra II.
