Dear Parent (Guardian):
As part of the test development process of the New York State Education Department the mathematics, and science departments of Southold Junior-Senior High School have been selected to field test assessment questions with students currently enrolled in Geometry, Algebra 2/Trigonometry and Earth Science. Questions that students will be responding to on the field test will best assist the State Education department with reliable and pertinent data that will enable them to ensure examination validity, equity, and reliability.
The field test will be administered to students in May during one of their scheduled classes under the supervision of their respective teacher and/or a substitute teacher. The exact test dates are all pending based upon the delivery of the field tests from the State Education Department. The results of the assessments will not be shared with us and will not be a component to your child’s grade in these classes.
In the interim, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the teacher your child has for the field tests listed.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
William R. Galati
