New York State Testing

This section provides information on both the New York State tests and Gifted & Talented Testing.

Elementary and students in New York State take yearly State tests in core academic subjects to assess their mastery of the Common Core Learning Standards.  Students’ test results are one of the factors that schools use to decide whether to promote a student to the next grade.  New York City and New York State use test results to evaluate how well schools are serving students.

The 4th Grade Science Performance Test consists of tasks at three stations and is administered in one sitting. The test is around 45-60 minutes.  Each station requires 15 minutes of testing time, for a total testing time of 45 minutes. Additional time is provided to give instructions to students and for students to move between stations.
