This spring, many students across New York State will take the New York State Grades 3-8 ELA and Mathematics operational or field tests on computer for the first time. Educators, students, and parents need tools to help students get comfortable taking a test on a computer.
A New York State Question Sampler is now available for educators, students, and parents to help students prepare for computer-based tests: https://ny-practice.nextera.questarai.com.
The Question Sampler, provided by Questar Assessment Inc., is accessible from any computer and provides computer-based sample questions in ELA and math for every grade 3-8. Teachers can use the Sampler in class, and students and parents can try it out at home.
Information on the Question Sampler can be found at http://www.nysed.gov/edtech/schools/question-sampler.
Please note that it is recommended that the Question Sampler be accessed through Google Chrome. If you attempt to access the Question Sampler through a browser other than Chrome, the Question Sampler may not function as expected.
