RE: Revised Dates for Grade 3-8 Test Writing
Based on our request SED’s new testing company, Questar, has revised the dates for the item writing workshops for the grade 3-8 state tests. They are still looking for teachers to work on developing the questions for the new grade 3-8 ELA and math tests. Participants will be paid for participation in the item writing workshop. The math workshop will be held on March 1-3 in Albany and the ELA workshop will be held on April 19-21 in Albany.
Please share this information with your Grade 3-8 teachers, special education teachers and ELL teachers. Names and contact information and grade level for participants should be sent to Terry McSweeney at firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will be contacted by the testing company if they are selected to participate.
