It is a performance-based assessment administered and scored by the test administrator using a script and a task-specific scoring rubric.

MTAS Reading and Math is given to students in grades 6-8. MTAS Science is given to students in grade 8. Test administration times will vary for each student, and the state does not provide estimated test administration times for the MTAS. Results will be mailed home in late August or early September.
