About the Exam
In Massachusetts, students are required to take the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests as a measurement of their academic performance. The High School Chemistry test is one of four Science and Technology Engineering tests available in the state. A condition of high school diploma eligibility is to take and pass one of these four tests with a scaled score of at least 220. It consists of 40 common and 20 matrix-sampled multiple-choice items. Also, expect five common and two matrix-sampled open-response items.
