||Okay - how many of you have noticed a group of teachers circled around the copy machine with scissors, glue sticks, and old copies of the NYS Assessments? They are there to build review sheets for their students - - to get them used to the questioning style of those tests.
NYLearns.org has taken that time-honored process to a whole new level! We've digitized it, so now you can search for questions based on a number of criteria. Once the questions are selected, our Assessment Builder will compile those questions into PDF documents that can be saved in your Portfolio, as well as to the computer that you are working on.
Currently you are able to search for previous copies of assessments in Mathematics, English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. We are planning to expand this area to include all subject areas where a NYS Assessment is administered.
Below are some samples that I created - the process is so simple - you can create and save an answer key too!
This has been one of the most popular features of our site! So far, I have shown you a lot of ways for you to share information with your students and families.... how about looking at something for yourself?!? When you are done looking at the assessments, click on Professional Development in the navigation menu.
