I agree!

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 multilayered 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.
34 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. ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nyshsmath" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=671 *******************************************************************
