Last week in Albany, they were clear that the scoring procedures for the math exam is the same as in the past. The formal training that was mentioned below is for ELA. NYSED IS putting out some scoring materials for math, but they shouldn?t look substantially different to you than what you have done in the past. They will be posted on EngageNY, but there were some inconsistencies in them and they needed to fix them before posting. There is an emphasis on using the guide papers that are provided, not just the rubrics. Apparently, some scorers have seen them as ?supplemental? and not part of the scoring guidance.

Can someone shed more light on what this scoring training will entail? Is it a webinar type thing? Why do we need to be trained to score these exams? What makes them so different? Is it a bad idea to grade on June 3 before this training- that was our plan, but I'm not sure if we need to change the plan. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Dave Ryley Beacon HS

We will need help in just checking that calculators are clear in each room etc? but there has been a major change. NYSED will now hold a scoring training for Algebra teachers. This training will be held on June 4th, so we will not score the exams on the 3rd.
We technically have until 6/26 to get the exams scored, so we will need to use a combination of common planning time and exam days to get the scoring completed by then.
