Posted by Gregory J. Guercio | May 01, 2014 | 0 Comments

At its meeting of April 29, 2014, the Board of Regents adopted emergency regulations to conform to the new “Common Core Implementation Reform Act” which was enacted as part of the 2014-15 State Budget (Ch. 56 of the Laws of 2014, Part AA). The regulations ban the use of standardized testing in Pre-K through grade two; limit the amount of time that can be spent on standardized testing and preparation; prohibit the inclusion of State assessment scores on student transcripts and permanent records; and prohibit the use of such scores as the sole or primary factor for determining student placement or promotion. The Regents also made several changes to the APPR standards and procedures contained in Subpart 30-2 of the Regents Rules to implement these new requirements.
