NYC Testing Memorandum 2021 NYS ELA and Math
The information below is being shared to help you prepare, should it be deemed feasible to
proceed with the spring 2021 test administrations at schools throughout the state. Please note
that NYSED and the Board of Regents are closely monitoring the feasibility and fairness
of administering the grades 3–8 English Language Arts and mathematics tests next spring. At
this time, no final decision regarding the 2021 grades 3–8 English Language Arts and
mathematics tests has been made.
At this time, the New York State (NYS) grades 3–8 English Language Arts (ELA) and math
exams are scheduled to be administered from April 20–21, and May 4–5, respectively. NYSED
shared this letter on the status of NYS assessments on September 30. NYSED and the Office of
Assessment are planning for the possibility that NYS assessments may be given this year.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Have a good evening.
