in 2010 nys raised the bar for proficiency
In 2010, NYS Raised the Bar for Proficiency
  • In 2010, Grade 8 proficiency levels were redefined to align with college-ready performance:
    • A Level 2 offers students a 75% chance of scoring a 65 on the English or Math Regents.
    • A Level 3 offers students a 75% chance of scoring a 75 (ELA) or 80 (Math) on the Regents.
  • In 2010, Grade 3 – 7 proficiency scores were set so that if a student makes a year’s worth of developmental growth, they will be on track for a Regents diploma.

* Note: A level 2 score in 2009 was designated “Partially Meeting the Learning Standard”; a Level 2 in 2010 is now referred to as “Meets Basic Standard”. A Level 3 in 2009 was “Meeting Learning Standards” and in 2010 is now “Meets Proficiency Standard”

  • Increased length of Math and ELA tests
  • Test additional performance indicators
  • Make test items more difficult to predict
  • Potential inclusion of items aligned to Common Core Standards
  • Raised cut scores across all subject grades
  • Approximately 25% of the questions on the 2010 math exams covered performance indicators that were not covered in 2009
  • Integration of Common Core elements into 3 – 8 and all other assessments

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) includes items that may align more closely to the CCSS. You can access NAEP items online: http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/itmrlsx/default.aspx
