Scoring the English Language Arts Assessments

By Danielle Mahoney
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

    After many months of anticipation and intensive teaching, the English Language Arts (ELA) New York State testing is over and done with. Whoo hoo!! And now, the scoring has officially begun. Who does the scoring? Teachers like you and me!

    I am really excited to be a part of a scoring team in my district. We've got rubrics to examine, examples of student answers to look over, scoring guides to work with, and many evenings and weekends set aside to get the scoring done. I am confident that because of your amazing guidance and support, the test results will show that your students have met the learning goals for your grade.

    I look forward to getting back into the swing of things next week with ideas on how to encourage your students to create fantastic summer reading plans. Until then . . .  I'm scoring! Do not disturb! ;)
