WDC students begin testing

This spring, Wadena-Deer Creek Public Schools will again be looking to see where our students are when it comes to the state standards set by the Minnesota Department of Education. 

The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (or MCAs) will begin at WDC in April. 

“It is important for each student to do his/her best so we know how best to help students improve in the future.  As we all know, it is hard to do our best when we are distracted so students need a good night’s sleep and breakfast to improve their performance on these assessments,” said Toni Kraska, WDC school counselor.  

Students take these assessments on a computer, so it is especially important that their eyes are rested.  

Parents can find resources on the website https://mn.pearsonperspective.com.  The students will be testing on the following dates:

3rd grade:

April 20-24—Math


4th grade:

April 27-May 1—Math


5th grade:

April 20-22—Math

May 4-6—Science


6th grade:

April 27-29—Math


7th grade:

April 30—Math


8th grade:

April 23—Math

May 7—Science


10th grade:

April 28—Reading

May 12-13—Science


11th grade:

April 21-22—Math

April 28—ACT

The previously scheduled ACT test date on April 18, 2015 at WDC High School has been canceled.
