On December 13, 2018, Ms. Koatz, assistant principal, gave a workshop for upper-grade parents on the upcoming Math and ELA (English Language Arts) exams. You can see a copy of her PowerPoint presentation here: ELA Math Parent Workshop December 2018-28i66ee The sample questions in the presentation are taken from the 2017 New York State exams (https://bit.ly/2yyWVN6). To get a better idea of the structure of the tests and the difficulty of the questions, Ms. Koatz suggests looking at the released questions from previous years (https://www.engageny.org/3-8).
Third, fourth and fifth grade students will be taking these exams on:
April 2 & 3 for ELA
May 1 & 2 for Math
If you have questions about the exams, please feel free to reach out to Ms. Koatz (firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-263-9770, ext. 1240).
She will also be giving another workshop on the 2019 exams in February or March.
