2017 Grades 3-8 New York State Assessments
Candor Central Schools will begin administering the Grade 3-8 Proficiency Exams next week. The ELA assessments will be administered on March 28th - 30th and the Math assessments will be administered on May 2nd - 4th. NYSED has made modifications to test development and structure to help alleviate some of the concerns presented by parents. These changes include greater teacher involvement in test development, reduced questions, and extended time for all students. For specific details on the changes that have occurred please click here to see the letter from Commissioner of Education MaryEllen Elia.
