    Ours is now. Is yours earlier like this or at the end of the year? Just curious to see how different it is.

    I'm a little confused: How could state testing be held right now if school just began in August? :dizzy:

    Our state testing is held in late April/early May.

    Yea, I"m confused just like YoungTeacherGuy.....how is that possible? Are they testing on what they should know for this year or last?

    Ours doesn't start until 2 weeks after Spring Break, in April.

    We used to test in January,but it was moved to May so we can include more topics on the exam and hold the current teacher responsible for the grade received as the children were with them most of the year.Our get the teacher campaign keeps gaining momentum in NYC.

    Mid April. I'm not sure I agree with testing kids over last year's skills when they've had summer break to forget it.

    Our kids take their reading test in March and Science and Math in May. It seems ridiculous to test kids so early in the year...
