I agree with all the excellent points posted on tricky and laborious Part
I's with vague directions for Part IV. I question the number of
multi-layered mc questions (10,14, 15,19,22,23,26). We usually get about
half that on previous Regents. This can impact the average student's
performance on the free response.

3-4 questions involved Law of Sines? 3 sequence questions? This test
lacks balance. If your student teacher gave you this test to look over,
wouldn't you send it back for corrections?

This year's conversion is: 67=85, 56=75, 46=65, but for June 2010 clearly
an easier test: 65=85, 55=75, 46=65. The math is not adding up. If test
design and scoring is not cleared up this test will completely lose its
relevancy as a means to assess our students before it's phased out.
