Dear PS101 Families,
Over the next several years, the NYS Education Department is moving all State Exams onto computers. In our case, since PS101 is a 1:1 laptop school and takes exams and works on computers regularly, this will be relatively easy for us.
As per NY State request of our technologically advanced school, our 5th Graders will be taking their State exams this year on computers.
5th Grade ONLY: Tomorrow, Jan 24th will be their first practice exam to help them to become familiar with the application (which is very similar to iReady). Our students will have several months of practice to ensure they are comfortable with the application
In Spring 2024– all 5th Grade (and 8th Grade) students will be taking their ELA, Math and Science state exams on computers.
In Spring 2025– all 4th Grade (and 7th Grade) students, in addition to 5th and 8th grade, will be taking their ELA and Math state exams on computers.
In Spring 2026– all 3rd Grade (and 6th Grade) students, in addition to 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th, will be taking their ELA and Math state exams on computers.
