1 Changes to the New York State Assessments Stratford Presentation 2010 Eileen Vota 1

2 Commissioner David M. Steiner created new cut scores in an effort to raise the achievement bar. These decisions were based on research that analyzed how the grade 3-8 state assessments relate to the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) exam, performance of Regents exams to SAT scores, and how results of Regents exams relate to the first year performance in college. 2

3 Proficiency Levels Level 1: Below Standard Student performance does not demonstrate an understanding of the English language arts knowledge and skills or mathematics content expected at this grade level Level 2: Meets Basic Standard Student performance demonstrates a partial understanding of the English language arts knowledge and skills or mathematics content expected at this grade level Level 3: Meets Proficiency Standard Student performance demonstrates an understanding of the English language arts knowledge and skills or mathematics content at this grade level Level 4: Exceeds Proficiency Standard Student performance demonstrates a thorough understanding of the English language art knowledge and skills or mathematics content expected at this grade level 3
