MCAP English Language Arts

The English Language Arts (ELA) is part of the MCAP suite of assessments. Students read passages from real texts (fiction and nonfiction) and sometimes watch video or listen to audio. They respond to prompts in writing, using what they’ve learned from the passages and multi-media to support their arguments. Students are measured in writing at every grade because it is key to showing readiness for the next level of academic work and, in high school, readiness for college and career.
