As we all know, testing is a regular part of school life. The purpose of tests can range from letting teachers know what students need to work on (formative tests), to assessing all that students have learned (summative tests). Student testing at the New York State and New York City levels are part of the accountability called for in the federal and state laws.
In a continuing effort to keep you informed, we will be posting links to sites and documents that have to do with state and city testing. If you have any questions about testing, you can contact our assistant principal, Catherine Koatz .
