Am I missing something? Have we been told exactly what year of high
school each of the topics will be tested?

I'm on Albany at a conference right now and they said today that it has
not yet been confirmed.

Maybe I am missing something, but has it been confirmed that parcc will
definitely replace the regents in 2014

John Svendson told us at the AMTNYS conference to go by the PARCC document
(NOT Appendix A) and he did mention that some (+) topics had been taken

Hi Listservers,

I'm trying to figure out if the (+) topics, specifically trigonometry of
non-right triangles, is going to be assessed on the NYS 2014 Regents exam.
It is specifically mentioned in Appendix A, and we have been told that
the (+) topics were "in", but the PARCC Frameworks document that is the
new thing doesn't mention them.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
