Could AMTNYS also bring it to State Ed's attention that the 3 - 8 testing is biased toward ELA because the kids are already sick and tired of testing during the second week, and do not care any longer or try as hard.

They should try to alternate it every other year, to at least be fair to math.

Thank you.

>>>>> With the latest update to the June 2014 exam schedule, Geometry and Alg 2/Trigonometry exams are being offered at the same time. I know that is quite a conflict for us to handle when it comes to supplies, especially graphing calculators when each students should have exclusive use of one. Knowing how many we typically lend out for each exam, I am sure our school's current supply won't be enough to meet our needs. Are other schools in the same situation as we are? I would like this brought to the state's attention because I am sure this is going to me a major issue in many schools.
