We are often asked questions about the MCAS Needs Improvement score. Below you will find the most common questions and answers pertaining to this score.
Question 1: “If a high school student gets a Needs Improvement score on an MCAS test, do they pass?”
Answer: “No they do not officially pass the test at that moment.”
Question 2: “If my student receives a Needs Improvement score on an MCAS test, will they fail and not be allowed to graduate?”
Answer: “They need to be tested again in 11th and 12 grade AND continue to take classes in that subject area. As long as they pass the English and/or math high school classes in 11th and 12th grade, they will be allowed to pass the MCAS test and graduate from high school.”
