A perfect opportunity for parents to give feedback.

Letter to Recruit Parents-Focus-Groups The Minnesota Department of Education is working on a redesign of the Individualized Student Reports (ISRs) provided to parents or guardians each year with test results on the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs). We are recruiting parents or guardians in your region to participate in a focus group to provide input on the report mock-ups being considered for reporting 2016 results.

The goal of the redesign is to deliver improved student reports that provide clear, concise interpretive information as well as a more graphical presentation of the test results.

We are asking for feedback about which elements are easiest to understand, which elements provide the most beneficial information, and what additional information can be provided to help with the interpretation and usefulness of the reports.
