A report released by the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education (MBAE) Thursday shows the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) does not indicate a student’s preparedness for post-high school success, and lacks "alignment with college and career expectations.”
MBAE officials tap this as the first study of its kind.
MBAE Executive Director Linda Noonan joined WGBH’s Morning Edition host Bob Seay to talk about the findings of the report, titled “Educating Students for Success: A Comparison of the MCAS and PARCC Assessments as Indicators of College- and Career-Readiness.”
