To make new information stick (vocabulary, facts & etc), try spacing out study sessions over several weeks. Research on what is know as the “spacing effect” shows that we form stronger and more lasting memories by exposing ourselves to information over time. Repeated cycles of learning, consolidating, and then re-encountering material fix it firmly in our minds. Avoid last minute cramming if you can help it.
MCAS Retest Schedule November 2011
The MCAS English Language Arts (ELA) and Math retests are scheduled for mid November. These tests will only be issued to 11th or 12th grade students that have received a failing or needs improvement score on their previous MCAS tests starting in 10th grade. If a student has previously passed one of the two subjects, they will only have to take one retest in the failing subject.
