Integrated Algebra Regents, a little on procedure
It seems that a few people are interested in yesterday’s Integrated Algebra Regents. For those of you not from New York State, you might like to skip this post.
I will post a link to the exam and the answer key and the conversion chart when they go on line.
The conversion chart will be available the 25th (they said before) or the 26th (they say now) or the 27th (according to people who don’t trust the state)
The exams were done by noon Tuesday. They were graded Tuesday afternoon (but there were no answer materials in the boxes. The State put them on-line a bit after noon) and this (Wednesday) morning, and were sent to the vendor by UPS, today. The schools were supposed to call for UPS, but in many cases UPS showed up unannounced and early and demanded the tests immediately. The vendor was going to send the exams to Iowa, but, you know, FLOODS, they sent them to Texas instead.
The vendor is going to post-equate the exams (I think) and a committee will propose a scale, another will review the scale, and the State will release the scale. All in the next few days. And then the answer sheets will come back to your schools (I think), and the schools will convert the grades, and you know what? Might be too late to get them on this term’s report cards? Check the transcript in September…
