    March, 2019

    Please be advised that the New York State Grades 3-8 Tests in English-Language Arts and Mathematics will be administered to students on the following dates:

    English-Language Arts - April 2-3 (makeups to follow)
    Mathematics - May 1-2 (makeups to follow)

    Please note the test was shortened from a three day to a two day test.  In additition, these tests are now untimed. Testing modifications apply where appropriately indicated in student IEPs.
    State assessments are an important part of instruction for the following reasons:

    1. Assessments provide an evaluation of student mastery of state learning standards.
    2. Assessments results help shape instructional planning in the classroom.
    3. Assessments help identify gaps in learning.
    4. Assessments help prepare students for high stakes testing at the high school. 
    5. Assessments help determine what instructional strategies are working well. 
    6. Assessments are instructional tools.

    In short, state and local assessment data provide the necessary information to inform quality instruction. Based on the many positive returns that testing provides. I look forward to your child's participation.
    If you have any questions, please contact your child's school counselor, grade level administrator or me at your earliest convenience.
