New York State Assessments
Fourth graders will be taking three standardized New York State tests.
The English Language Arts test is usually given in April. It is a three day exam that includes multiple choice questions, short response and extended response questions.
The second exam is the Math assessment. This test may be given in April and/or May and is a three day test that includes multiple choice questions as well as short response.
The third exam is the Science Exam. This may be given in late May and early June. It is a two day test that includes multiple choice, short response and a hands-on assessment.
Please know that my goal is to let students know that that they will be prepared and to simply show what they know. I do not “teach to the test”.
