The Maryland School Assessment (MSA) is a test of reading and math achievement that meets the testing requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act. The test is given each year in early March in reading and math at grades 3 through 8. As early as March 2008, science will be added in grades 3, 5, and 8. Scores from the MSA and other state tests are posted on the Web at www.mdreportcard.org . The testing calendar is available as an MS Word document or as an Adobe PDF. Sample test items are available on mdk12.org.
