About the Test

The MCAP mathematics assessments focus on the content outlined in the Maryland College and Career Ready Standards for each grade level or course. Students are asked to demonstrate their understanding of mathematics by solving real-world problems, making sense of quantities and their relationships, and reasoning mathematically.

Grades K-2

The MCAP K-2 mathematics assessments will be given in the early fall of grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 on content from the previous year of instruction. As an additional part of the MCAP K-2 assessment system, the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) is administered at the beginning of kindergarten.

Grades 3-8, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II

For students in grades 3 through 8, the assessments are given toward the end of the school year. Assessments in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II are administered after a student has completed most of the required course.
