BlueSky MCA Testing Options

BlueSky’s online format and the large geographic area of our state present several challenges that have to be addressed to ensure that each student has ample opportunity to satisfy the Minnesota writing, reading and mathematics testing requirements.

To help meet these challenges, BlueSky currently offers several different testing opportunities. During April, the primary MCA testing window, BlueSky staff arrange and host a number of different testing locations across the state.

Mobile testing centers are arranged in local libraries and planned within a one-hour-drive of every BlueSky student needing to retake the tests. Opportunities are scheduled in each area at least once per year, with retesting notifications being sent out each month.

BlueSky will also email or telephone students in regards to testing dates. Any additional questions or concerns regarding assessments can be directed to BlueSky’s dedicated testing coordinator Dawn Mensing through e-mail at or by phone at 651-202-2005.
