This is your chance to share your experiences - positive or negative - on the state's second year of the grade 3-8 English language arts assessment. How did the ELA impact you and your students? NYSUT wants your comments about the test itself, administration and scoring. We'd also like feedback on the changes in testing requirements for English language learners and special education students.

The informal survey will only take a few minutes to complete. And you can be sure we'll pass your comments on to the policymakers in the State Education Department.
 
"We'd like to hear from as many educators as possible, with broad representation geographically and across grade levels, regarding the impact of these tests on teachers and students," said NYSUT Vice President Maria Neira. "Our members are on the front lines of this massive testing effort."
