From Mrs. Stilphen's Weekly "News from Mahoney":

All Mahoney students will be taking the Maine Educational Assessments on March 29, 30 and 31.  Students will be tested in the areas of Math, Reading and Writing.  There are some differences in this assessment from the ones in the past.  One that directly affects students is that while the test is untimed, the State of Maine does not allow a student to continue a test session into the next day.  So while in the past a student could take up to several days to complete a test session, this year once a session is started, it must be completed that same day.   We will do our best to support those students that need more time and provide them with an alternate testing space to continue their work.  Here is a letter from Becky Brown, SPSD's Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Director, that shares some more information.
