Transition to Common Core Assessments

We encourage you to share this memo regarding the transition to Common Core assessments with administrators, staff, parents, and communities.


Common Core Assessment Design

Beginning with the 2012-13 administration, the New York State tests in Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics will measure the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS). Similarly, some ELA and Mathematics Regents Exams will be aligned to the CCLS beginning in the 2013-14 school year, and the rest will follow suit in the 2014-15 school year.

To guide test question development, the New York State Education Department has developed Item Review Criteria and additional guidance resources. See the Common Core Assessment Design resources.
