GRADES 3-8 COMPUTER BASED TESTING SUCCESS


This spring, MVCSD successfully implemented computer based testing for NYS ELA and Math assessments in grades 3-8. 

 

The NYS Education Department has indicated that they will require all schools across the state to implement computer based testing over the next few years. Minisink Valley responded proactively by creating schoolwide CBT teams who collaborated and developed testing plans that were driven by a "student first" philosophy.  

 

As expected, like many other schools across NY, we experienced the minor trials and tribulations of participating in the first large scale computer based test administration in the state. However, the minor glitches did not eclipse the overarching success of the endeavor. Our students, teachers, administrators and support staff rose to the occasion to make the first computer based test administration in MVCSD a success.
