Grades 3-8 testing schedule updated by NYSED

Jan. 9, 2012—The New York State Education Department has increased testing time, the number of questions asked and has added a day to the English Language Arts exam in its revised 2012 Grades 3-8 English Language Arts and Mathematics Testing Program, announced in late December.

NYSED has increased the number of test questions to obtain the most accurate information possible about student achievement and to include field test questions upon which future tests will be built. To accommodate the increased number of questions, the ELA and mathematics assessments will each be administered over the course of three days.

Grades 3-8 English Language Arts testing will be held from Tuesday, April 17 – Thursday, April 19, 2012

Grades 3-8 Mathematics testing will be held from Wednesday, April 25 – Friday, April 27, 2012

 

In addition, the state increased overall testing times to allow students sufficient time to demonstrate what they have learned. Although the actual time that it will take the typical student to complete each session is estimated to be 45, 50, 60 or 70 minutes depending on their grade and subject, school districts must schedule 90 minutes per day for each session, at each grade level.
