NY education officials propose removing Regents exams from graduation requirements

Chalkbeat has this story about changes to testing:

“The decision comes after the Biden administration said testing will be required this year, but that schools wouldn’t be held accountable for scores.

New York high school students may not need Regents exams this year to earn a diploma, state education officials announced Tuesday.

State officials plan to vote next month on a proposal to unlink New York’s century-old high school exit exams from graduation requirements. The change would apply to students taking tests this year, and officials anticipate the proposal will look similar to last year, when Regents were canceled and students were required to pass only the related course.

The decision comes a day after the U.S. Department of Education announced that students must still take standardized tests this school year in order to gauge the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on student learning. However, schools won’t be held accountable for test score results, and states will have broad flexibility in how to administer them.”
