Board of Regents Reduces Number of Grades 3 to 8 Assessment Days Beginning with 2018 Spring Exams

The Board of Regents earlier this week announced its decision to reduce the number of days of student testing on the grades 3-8 State assessments in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics from three days for each exam to two. This change takes effect beginning with the tests that will be administered in Spring 2018.

In addition to reducing the number of test sessions, the Board’s decision also reduces scoring time for teachers and may help enable more schools to transition sooner to computer-based testing.
