List of Overlapping Intro Physics and Biology standards for 2019 HS MCAS test

The lists of the "overlapping" standards from the 2001/06 and 2016 STE standards that will be assessed on theJune 2019 MCAS High School Biology and Introductory Physics tests are now posted to our website athttp://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/tdd/sci.html?section=transition. The June 2019 Biology and Introductory Physics tests will consist of questions that align to both sets of standards. The focus of the test questions will be on the overlapping content and skills between the two sets of standards.

Please note: The June 2019 Chemistry and Technology/Engineering tests and the February 2019 Biology test will only be aligned to the 2001/06 STE standards.

In addition, an updated crosswalk for the Introductory Physics and Biology standards was recently posted and can be found at http://www.doe.mass.edu/stem/ste/?section=planning.

The Next Generation test designs for grades 5 and 8 will be posted soon.  

Thank you in advance to all of the schools that are participating in the High School Intro Physics and Biology Tryouts this spring.
