Standards & Reviews & Exams – oh my!

Here is a collection of resources for NY State Science Teachers – it’s meant to be a one-stop shopping place to access standards, review supports and old Regents exams.

Members of “GRS in Progress” will be using this page to thoughtfully analyze the previous Regents Exam questions that assess concepts their students typically struggle with.  They will map these old test questions to the standards they are intended to assess and rank their own confidence with teaching and understanding each item.  We will then work together to develop complementary (more authentic, performance-based) assessments and instructional strategies to more effectively scaffold your kids’ understandings.
