Alternate Assessments

New York State Alternate Assessments for grades 3-5 will be done a little differently this year. Grade 4 Science Assessment will be conducted through the month of January and are due before February break. The ELA and Math portion of the exam will be done in the Spring and are to be conducted on a computer. There is still not a lot of information about the ELA and Math exams at this time, but I will forward the information as I receive it.
