Memo regarding NY State ELA and Math Testing
Date: March 29, 2018
To: Parents and Guardians
From: Dr. Anthony Bongo, Principal, Isaac E. Young Middle School
RE: 2018 NYS English Language Arts and Math grades 3-8 Testing Program
In a couple of weeks, the New York State Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Tests will be administered to students. The ELA will be given on Wednesday April 11th and Thursday April 12th, and the Math on Tuesday May 1st and Wednesday May 2nd.
Beginning this year the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Tests have been reduced from three test sessions to only two test sessions, meaning each subject will have two days of testing instead of three. With fewer test sessions, each test will have fewer questions than recent years, lessening test fatigue for students and better enabling them to demonstrate what they know and are able to do.
Additionally, like the 2016 and 2017 tests, the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Tests will continue to be untimed so students who are still working on their exams will be allowed to continue to work, within the confines of the regular school day. Students who finish may be permitted to hand in their test materials and leave the room.
Regarding teacher and principal evaluations/APPR, student performance on the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Test will have no employment-related consequences. In December 2015, the Board of Regents approved a moratorium on using students’ scores on these exams for educators’ consequential evaluation scores. This means no teachers or principals in New York State public schools will be affected by the results of the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Tests.
Test questions and instructional reports will be released before the end of the school year. Like last year, the State Education Department will be release 75% of the questions from the 2018 tests and the instructional reports on or around June 1. You can view 2017 test questions on Engage NY at https://www.engageny.org/3-8.
You can find out more information about the State Tests on the State Education Department’s Website at http://p12.nysed.gov/
Thank you for your time.
