Regents Grade and Final Average

Regents scores are not percents, but rather scaled scores just like theNYS 3-8 exams or SATs.   Regents scores do not represent a percent of points even though the 100 point scale makes them appear to be a percentage.  If teachers are using the Regents grade as a percent of the final grade then they are using a scale score as if it were a percentage that can be averaged into the final grade.

At this time, NYSED does not have a policy that bans districts from using Regents grades to calculate final averages.  However, why is Regents used in final average calculations, a new data element???
