State test scores will be out in July

The New York State Board of Regents approved a recommendation to move the release date of scores on the Grades 3 - 8 ELA and Math tests from the origional date, June 24 to the week of July 26, 2010.

"School districts and teachers were notified last spring that the tests would change this year and, in the case of math, address more material.  Students took the exams this year in late April and May, after many more weeks of instruction than in previous years...

The additional time spent in the analysis of the assessments will also allow student performance on this year’s revised assessments to be appropriately incorporated into the state’s 2010-2011 school accountability determinations."
