I everyone, Thought I would forward this on--it pertains to 3-8 testing and it does clarify that the PreMay PI's from 2005 standards are being tested on the April, 2012 state assessments. I was asking about the following year and if they were going to tell us which standards (CCLS) would be pre and post test as I figured they must have given that information to Pearson who has the contract. Bottom line--SED has not released this information. See below. Iva Jean Tennant

Greetings Eileen, I know that and am fully aware of that fact for this upcoming year's assessment. I am talking about writing our curriculum for the next school year, 2012-2013. I want to know about the 2013 assessment. Are we going to have pre and post test standards? If so, when will we get them? I know that Pearson is contracted to do that assessment and am assuming they have been told which standards are tested. Since this year's test was pushed up, I assume we are not going to be assessed in June, so which standards are being assessed in 2013 test which I assume is going to be sometime in the spring. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer this. There are many people waiting to hear the response. Iva Jean Tennant President-Elect of Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State

John, So sorry that you can't come to our meeting--:( Anyway, since we have the new curriculum next year and the assessments will probably be in April or sometime in the spring, when will get a list of standards that are pretest and post test. I am sure they had to tell Pearson something as they are making the tests for 3-8. I sent a note to assessment but did not get a response. Can you find out for us for the conference call? Is there someone in particular I should address the question? Thanks Iva Jean
