New York Regents Add Test Results to Teacher Evaluations - NYTimes.com


Beginning in 2012, there will be no exams in January, depriving thousands of students in New York City alone chances of graduating early, making up tests they have failed, or getting a jump start on future tests. The tests, which are required for graduation, are to be given only in June and August. City principals predicted a cascade of consequences, including declining graduation rates.



Wow, these are such drastic changes. I think the new evaluation criteria ("highly effective,” “effective,” “developing” or “ineffective”) makes more sense rather than the current ("satisfactory" or "unsatisfactory.")

On another note, elimination of Foreign Language Regents Exams altogether is a major setback for the bilingual population in NYC.
