It is a common opinion that the MCAS Test is unfair to many students who are forced to take it in order to receive their diploma. This paper helps investigate the MCAS Test itself, its goals, and the students taking it in the Worcester Public School system. The two major focus points of the paper were the ethnicity of the student body, and the schools at which they were enrolled.
