NYS Test scores

NYS has announced that individual scores will not be released until July 26th.

Students will receive the printouts of their scores in September.

Anyone who would like their children's scores sent to them over the summer should send in a self-addressed stamped envelope and we will be happy to send them when they are released.

ETA - if anyone didn't remember to send in an envelope, just leave me a comment with the address you want the scores sent to.

Week of June 1st

Last weekend homework of the year -

Do the 2007 practice Science test, then check your answers here - http://www.nysedregents.org/Grade4/Science/home.html

You can find the first 30 multiple choice answers under Scoring Key and the extended response questions under Rating Guide. That will tell you what is and is not a acceptable answer.  Let me know if you have any problems with the site.

If you want extra practice - the only test we didn't do is the Sample test. (NOTE - the SAMPLE TEST is from 2003 so that's the only 2003 test.) Scroll down for the SAMPLE TEST - it's below 2004.

Review any items that you have been getting wrong. Review the old tests.

Remember to bring sharpened #2 pencils for the test on Monday.
