How Regents Are Scored: Please Write Something :)

Students greatly benefit from knowing how the long answers on their  tests will be scored.

44% of the exam is now non-multiple choice (38/86 points) whereas the Integrated Algebra had only 30% of the points (26/86) as non-multiple choice.

Too often students leave these questions blank which yields, um, zero points.

So it is super important for students to answer as many of these questions as they can and have knowledge on how the grading is done.

Click for Model Response Set that shows “student work” for graders to have examples of what work looks like at different point levels.  For example, a 2 point question will have model responses that show 0, 1 and 2 points.

The Rating Guide has a broader rubric on how many points to award student work but this is often just a description so graders use both documents in the grading process.
