NY State Tests Can Be Given on Computers This Year
Say goodbye to paper and pencil tests! If schools choose to do so, they can administrator this years state mandated tests on the computer.
According to WGRZ the states Education Department is allowing the mandated math and English tests to be administered on computers for intermediate and elementary school students.
The tests will be the same as the ones in print form. But this new option allows the state to save on printing and also retrieve results faster.
I'm truly surprised it has taken this long to move to an updated system for test taking. In my opinion traditional paper based testing is a waste of resources.
What do you think of this new option for schools? Comment below!
