Results from the 2016 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA), taken by students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 last spring and received on July 26, showed a slight increase in math proficiency and steady proficiency rates in both reading and science.
At most grade levels, District 191 results were below state averages. However, improvement in certain pockets shows support for the changes the district is working to implement through Vision One91 and other initiatives.
Results from the 2015 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA), taken by students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 last spring and received on July 27, mirrored statewide results with math scores generally lower than in 2014 and mixed results in both reading and science.
