Minnesota has adopted the Minnesota Academic Standards for English/language arts only. Minnesota will use the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment Test (MCAs) to measure student proficiency. Education Galaxy provides support for Minnesota Academic Standards in ELA to help prepare Minnesota students for the rigor of Common Core reading and language skills. Education Galaxy currently does not support Minnesota’s math standards.
Education Galaxy’s Common Core MCA test preparation program provides online assessment and practice for students in grades K-5 to help build mastery towards the Minnesota Academic Standards. Our unique online program is easy to use and enjoyable for both teachers and students. Students work on their Study Plans practicing important concepts while teachers pull formative assessment reports to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their classroom and individual students.
|None of our content is ever simply “Aligned”. We ensure all our questions are built from the ground up to prepare students for the rigor of the Minnesota Academic Standards and Minnesota MCA testing. Education Galaxy provides thousands of Common Core questions for you to use with online assessments and printable worksheets. Content covers Common Core math, language arts, reading, and a national science series.|
|Every student receives their own personalized Minnesota MCAs Study Plan that allows them to see exactly how they are performing in each individual Minnesota Academic standard. Students can work self-paced, or teacher directed. Students work through their Study Plans to earn rewards and show mastery. Education Galaxy makes MCAs test prep fun and engaging!|
|Students can’t wait to “play” Education Galaxy! While Education Galaxy is fun, students must earn their rewards and game time. We reward students for success throughout the school year to keep them engaged while rewarding their progress of mastering standards. Answering questions correctly during study time allows them to play mini games. Mastering concepts provides them Galaxy Stars that are used to unlock rockets for their games and to improve their Alien Ranking. Galaxy Cards show absolute mastery!|
|Along with wonderful solutions for grades 2-5, Education Galaxy provides amazingly fun solutions for our younger learners in kindergarten and first grade. Students are seamlessly integrated into an assessment environment with beautiful graphics, games, and fun questions. A real human voice reads all text to the students. In many cases, it is other kids reading the reading passages and questions! Your young learners will love Education Galaxy!|

|Minnesota Teachers can easily pull different reports filtered either by student, class, grade level, subject, or school. Reports allow teachers to quickly find the specific Common Core standards that students are doing well in and areas that require more instruction.
