|Nearly 50 New York State test scoring professionals recently gathered at the CNYRIC for a two-day meeting. Representatives from the state’s 12 regional information centers were present, as well as members of the New York City Department of Education, Yonkers Public Schools, Buffalo Public Schools, Rochester City School District, and Syracuse City School District.
“Things change on a daily basis in the test scoring world, so this bi-annual meeting is a great opportunity for us to connect and exchange best practices,” said CNYRIC Systems Consultant Michele Rourke.
As a leader in the state’s test scoring arena, the CNYRIC has hosted the meetings for more than a dozen years.
“Much of the state uses the answer sheets that we create, as well as our application to scan state exams including the 3-8 math and ELA exams, 4 and 8 science exams, NYS Alternate Assessment, and the NYS English as a Second Language Achievement Test," said Rourke. “We enjoy hosting these meetings because we’re able to share our expertise with our colleagues throughout the state.”
During the meeting, attendees experienced a test scoring Q & A session with NYSED via videoconference.
