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’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.
