In order to best assess student learning of the CCLS, the Department has developed new Grade 3-8 Common Core English Language Arts and Mathematics Tests. These new tests will be administered beginning in the spring 2013 and assess only CCLS.
In an effort to provide educators with as much support as possible regarding the instructional and assessment shifts necessitated by the Common Core, the Department has prepared 2013 Test Guides for each subject and grade. The Test Guides integrate important instructional and assessment information into a single document and detail how the CCLS in English Language Arts and Mathematics will be measured on the 2013 tests and supplement the other Common Core implementation resources found on EngageNY.
