MaryEllen Elia, the New York State Commissioner of Education released a “Dear Colleague” letter to accompany questions.

She made the following points:

  •  75 percent of the questions from the 2016 Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Tests that counted toward student scores are now posted online at EngageNY.org.
  • 100 percent of the constructed-response questions have also been released, and teachers and parents will for the first time have the opportunity to review their students’ constructed-response answers.
  • Instructional reports will be available to schools and districts by the end of the week.
