Are any schools struggling with the 8th grade honors curriculum and deciding where to focus their students' efforts - 8th grade assessment or the Algebra Regents?
Or should I rephrase the question... How are schools deciding where to focus their students' efforts....

yes--they sit with their cohort, so would take the 8th grade exam as that is their cohurt.
I have a 6th grader taking my accelerated 7th math class but she will sit for the 6th grade assessment

We are preparing for that in Seneca Falls. Would LOVE to hear differently.
