MCAP Assessments

The MCAP Assessments measure student achievement in Algebra I, English 10, Government, and LS-MISA for high school students. The MCAP Assessments are aligned to the Maryland College and Career-Ready Standards and define the knowledge and skills all students should master by the end of each grade level in order to graduate from high school fully prepared to enter college and the workforce. If you are expecting your child to graduate with a diploma from Queen Anne’s County High School, your child must take all four of the state assessments.
