Next year we are definitely using Regents exams aligned to common core. After that, no decision has been made.

In the past, I have done the field tests without accommodations. No grade is
mpacted - potential for information gleaned is huge.
And yes - we, too, drew the short stick - for Geometry. Same question.

Our school was lucky enough to win the NYS lottery... for Regents Field tests.
e have done them many times before but I have 2 questions:

1) What do we do with students who have accommodations? The tests are
upposed to be done in one class period but some students are entitled to extra
ime or having questions read. Does anyone know how to handle this?

2) Why are we giving field tests in Integrated Algebra if next June is
he last one? I was under the impression the questions that are field tested
ouldn't be used on an exam for a while.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide,
