The Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP) assessments of Maryland College and Career Ready Standards (MCCRS) will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of high school, mark students’ progress toward this goal from grade 3 through high school, and provide teachers with timely information to inform instruction and provide student support.

This site hosts all of the tools necessary for Test Coordinators, Technology Coordinators, and Test Administrators to prepare for and administer MCAP assessments.
