NYS ELA & Math Update: Per-Session Processing
Scoring for the New York State grades 3–8 ELA and math exams will take place during the school day in accordance with the following schedule:
ELA Session A: April 29–May 1
ELA Session B: May 2–3, 6–8
MATH Session C: May 9–10, 13–16
All school personnel selected for scoring positions should report to their assigned scoring site by 8:30 a.m. on all days for which they have been assigned; reminder emails will be sent to all scorers before the start of each scoring session. You should ensure that the designated scorers from your school are present at the scoring site for all days for which they have been assigned. If you are aware that a scorer from your school will be absent, you should send an eligible replacement who can complete scoring for all remaining days of the session. You will receive attendance reports via email by the end of each day of scoring.
Note that staff members who are participating in a per-session scoring activity will bring back timesheets to your school's payroll secretary for processing. For instructions on processing these timesheets, see here. For questions about per-session timesheets, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
