NEW YORK COUNTY GRADES 3-8 ELA ASSESSMENT DATA

The grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics assessments measure the higher 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 this site are based on those reported by schools and districts to the State as of July 20, 2017 via the Student Information Repository System (SIRS). 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.

For more information and additional files, please view the NYSED press release

Due to changes in the 2016 exams, the proficiency rates from exams prior to 2016 are not directly comparable to the 2016 and 2017 proficiency rates.

  1. You can do a side-by-side comparison of the same dataset between two or three location and/or years. There are two ways to accomplish this.

    1. Use the quick comparisons section for the most common options.
    2. Create a custom comparison, by adding this location to the comparison engine using the + button.

  2. If you're creating a custom comparison, you'll need to navigate to this report for another location and/or year and use the + icon on that page to add it to the comparison engine.
