Practice tests for each grade level of the assessment are available below for you to use to familiarize yourself with the kinds of items and format used for the ELA MCAS assessment. Also available are blank CBT response boxes, which allow students to practice answering constructed-response questions using the TestNav8 testing platform.

Please select your grade level to view practice tests.

  • For computer-based practice tests, the testing platform has a default login of "Guest." However, users can choose to enter a name when they begin. The user’s name will appear on the printable score report displayed at the end of the practice test, but the name will not be captured or maintained in the system. Teachers can assign numerical values to each student as a login, if that is preferred.
  • Paper practice tests can be printed. The material on these tests is non-secure.
  • The zoom tool is unavailable in the practice tests below. To access the zoom tool, open the TestNav app and click on the practice tests link under the sign in fields.
