New York schools, parents, and policy experts from across the state anxiously await the release of the spring 2013 ELA and mathematics exams, a new set of assessments designed to reflect proficiency with the Common Core Learning Standards.
Last week, New York State Education Department staff presented the Board of Regents with a detailed explanation of the process of establishing cut scores (which means the process of deciding how a particular scale score translates into levels 1-4). The presentation is available here.
Stay tuned for the public release of the scores, which is coming soon. NECSN will offer an updated analysis of charter school performance on our webpage when the data is public.
