      -   Provide feedback of your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study
      -   Compare performance on an admissions test to others  applying to college
      -   Preparation for the SAT
      -   Receive information from colleges when you check "yes" to Student Search Service
      -   Juniors taking the PSAT are also eligible for National Merit Scholarship consideration
      *Sign-up is available for 11th grade students in the CHS Guidance Office
    • MCA
      The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) are state tests in mathematics, reading and science.
      Cloquet uses the information to improve classroom teaching and learning. Teachers and principals look for areas where students do well so they can reinforce the ways they teach these skills. They also look for areas that need improvement so they can increase instructional time or modify their instruction.
      Per State Requirements students in 10th grade will take the Reading and Science MCA’s and students in 11th grade will take the Math MCA’s.
