Scooooooore: ELA and Math test scores released today


At high noon today, the New York State Department of Education will present the 2007-08 English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math scores for students statewide, including New York City public school students. (We'll post a link when they go live, anticipated for noon.)

Of course, the official New York State report cards, available for most city schools, are two years out of date (with data from 2005-2006). Last year, new report cards posted in late May. This year, it's late June and we don't yet know when the updated report cards will go live. We've heard "end of June" -- but who's counting?

Update: Sorry for initial misdirect; here's the link to 2008 ELA and Math scores. It's an unwieldy pdf; we're looking for a more compact, accessible link.

Just heard from David Cantor of the DOE, who says they'll post city stats today; stay tuned.

Still no scores? It's nearly 1:30. Are schools going to finally be telling parents the scores of their children today as well? It's been many, many months.

The ELA link is showing 2006-2007 posted by them May 2007. When you can please provide updated link. Thanks.

Your link takes us to the 2006-07 scores. That means they have not released them yet?

Try the new link, just posted, and sorry for confusion -- you can imagine the amount of data flying across the (non)-wires.

Schools have had scores for some time, on embargo, and should release them today or soon (no universal policy). If nothing else, they may come home with report cards toward the end of the week.

Why were the scores "on embargo"?

helen said...

good question, kitzelkat - we've asked, but no one's answered (yet).

They were probably "on embargo" so that the release would coincide with today's planned love fest. The scores probably couldn't be released earlier because of Klein's busy schedule: traveling to DC and Orlando, giving a lengthy interview to Brownstoner, avoiding the wrath of disgruntled parents regarding notification of placements, etc.

I thought that the schools have had the scores for awhile and if a parent asked a teacher for their child's score the school was required to provide it.

Our school gave me the results last week verbally after I nagged them a whole bunch, but wouldn't release the written scores because they had been told by DOE that scores were embargoed.

Embargo on state directive; they didn't want scores to leak out prior to the Regents meeting yesterday (Monday).

My children came home yesterday with their Parent's report for both Math & ELA scores(District 20).
