The New State Standard for Proficiency: College Readiness

Students taking more remedial courses in their first year of college are less likely to persist in higher education

performance on the regents exams
Performance on the Regents Exams
  • NY State Admissions Directors consider a Regents score of 75 to 85 to be a bare minimum for college readiness:
    • 75 to 85 on the Regents is considered by selective schools (as part of their holistic review of applicants) the lower threshold for admissions;
    • SUNY campuses use 85 as a mark of solid competence, below 75 is a mark of “inadequately prepared”;
    • 75 on Regents is a threshold for placement in remediation for CUNY; and
    • 75 on Regents is considered roughly equivalent to a 500 on the SAT and serves as a threshold for remediation.

How the State Set the New Standards

The 2010 Math and ELA Proficiency Standard scores have been changed from 650 where they have been set in the past

  • 8th-grade Proficiency scores are now set at a level that provides students a 75% chance of earning a college-ready Regents score
  • 3rd-7th grade Proficiency scores are now set so that if a student makes a year’s worth of developmental growth they will be on track for a college-ready Regents score
