The Testing Guide posted on EngageNY for Math 8 states
"The 2013 Grade 8 Common Core Mathematics Test will focus entirely on the Grade 8 New York State CCLS for Mathematics. As such, the test will be designed differently than in the past."
Our BOCES has been doing a lot of PD with people who have been involved in work at Albany. According to them, this means no post previous year topics on the state exam. Teachers may have to teach some post topics so that students will have the skills to learn their current grade level material.
