Computer Based Testing (CBT)



As the New York State Education Department continues to transition to computer-based testing (CBT) the EduTech State Assessment Department will continue to be committed to supporting our districts CBT needs.

Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, New York State started administering statewide assessments on computers. Grades 3 – 8 English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics computer-based tests, stand-alone field tests. Live ELA and mathematics grades 3 – 8 testing started in 2016-2017 school year.

In the 2017-2018 school year, Social Studies has been dropped from New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) testing. NYSAA ELA, Mathematics and Science testing will be available only through CBT.
