3 years, 5 months ago The issue with students not able to resume suspended or paused tests has been resolved.
3 years, 5 months ago Update - Engineers are continuing to investigate this issue. While testing, students may experience errors or find themselves unable to proceed. This does not appear to affect all students testing at this time, and appears to be related to tests that were paused/suspended prior to this past Friday. Pausing/suspending and resuming tests today does not appear to exhibit any problems. For students who have not encountered this issue, please continue testing. If a student encounters this issue, our recommendation is to either start a new test for that student or wait for further information, which will be posted as soon as it is available.

You can view the status of the issue at http://status.nwea.org.

Thank you for your flexibility and patience in this situation.
5 years, 1 month ago Education Commissioner Casselius has suspended MCA testing across the State of Minnesota for today, with a commitment to resolve Pearson-based technical issues prior to resuming test administration.

Therefore, all scheduled MCA administration is suspended until notification to resume from Dr. Ric Dressen. Thank you for your understanding and tremendous flexibility in this situation.
