The ELA NYS tests are complete. They were the same in format as they have been (find past examinations on http://www.nysed.gov) except the elimination of the listening selection. Book 2, which was traditionally the listening selection, instead included more reading and a combination of multiple choice and written response questions.
Now that they are done, we are looking ahead to the next test: the NYS math exams. These tests will be given at the end of April, from April 30 – May 2. I will begin our focus on NYS math test prep after the spring break, inshaa Allah.
