Changes for 2016 Grades 3-8 ELA and mathematics tests

Feb. 9, 2016—The New York State Education Department recently released a memorandum regarding changes to this year's 3-8 ELA and math assessments. The three main changes outlined in the memo include:

Greater involvement of educators in the test development process;
Decrease in the number of test questions; and
A shift to untimed testing (students will have as long as they need to complete this spring’s grades 3-8 ELA/math exams)

These changes are intended to improve the testing experience for students and the validity of the assessments.
