The grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics assessments measure the Common Core Learning Standards that were adopted by the State Board of Regents in 2010, which more accurately reflect students' progress toward college and career readiness. Data are available statewide and at the county, district, and school level.
Data available on data.nysed.gov are based on those reported to the State as of July 25, 2014 via the Student Information Repository System (SIRS) and reflect unmatched data. results for students who participated in all test books in both 2013 and 2014 ("matched students") can be found on the NYSED website. This matched approach displays the year-to-year results of the exact same students in 2013 and 2014.
The New York State School Report Card 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics assessment data will be based on those data reported as of the final school year reporting deadline.
