Read an Excerpt

Welcome to an Educational Adventure 

The New York State Testing Program is the Empire State’s answer to the federal No Child Left Behind Act, which requires that states use standards-based testing to ensure that students are picking up the skills and knowledge necessary for academic success. 

We at REA believe that a friendly, hands-on introduction and preparation for the test are keys to creating a successful testing experience. REA’s NY State Testing Program books offer these key features: 

* Clearly identified book activities 
* Contextual illustrations
* Easy-to-follow lessons
* Step-by-step examples
* Tips for solving problems tailored for the proper grade level 
* Exercises to sharpen skills
* Lots of practice
 
Below is helpful information for students, parents, and teachers concerning the NY State Test and test taking in general. Organized practice is itself a prime skill for young students to master, because it will help set the tone for success long into the future as their educational adventure continues. It is REA’s sincere hope that this book—by providing relevant, standards-based practice—can become an integral part of that adventure. 

 
What is the New York State Test? 
The New York State Test is a standards-based assessment used in New York’s public schools. Performance on the New York State Test equates not with the grades students receive for teacher-assigned work but rather with proficiency measures pegged to how well students are acquiring the
knowledge and skills outlined in the New York State Learning Standards. Those proficiency measures fall into three broad categories, or bands: “partially proficient,” “proficient,” and “advanced proficient.” 

When is the NY State Mathematics Test given? 
The test is administered in early spring. Grade 4 students take the NY State Mathematics Test on three consecutive days. Each day requires 50 minutes, plus an additional 10 minutes of preparation time. 

What is the format of the NY State Mathematics Test? 
On Day 1, students answer 30 multiple-choice questions. For each multiple-choice question, students are asked to choose the correct answer out of four. On Day 2, students answer 7 short-response questions and 2 extended response questions. On Day 3, students answer 7 short-response questions
and 2 extended-response questions. For these open-ended questions, students answer with written responses in their own words. 

Understanding the NY State Mathematics Test and This Book 

Students: 

This book was specially written and designed to make test practice easy and fruitful for students. Our practice tests are very much like the actual NY State Mathematics Test, and our review is filled with illustrations, drills, exercises, and practice questions to help students become familiar with the testing
environment and to retain information about key topics. 

Parents: 
The NY State Mathematics Test and other state assessment tests are designed to give the school information about how well children are achieving in the areas required by the New York State Learning Standards. These standards describe what students should know at the end of certain grades. This book helps children review and prepare effectively and positively for the NY State Mathematics Test. 

Teachers: 
Teachers introduce students to the test-taking environment and the demands of the NY State Mathematics Test. Teachers can use our authoritative book in the classroom for planned, guided instruction and practice testing. Effective preparation means better test scores!

Test Accommodations and Special Situations 
Every effort is made to provide a level playing field for students with disabilities who are taking the NY State Mathematics Test. In general, students with educational disabilities should be provided with the testing accommodations specified in their Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
or Section 504 Accommodation Plans (504 Plans) when taking the test. However, testing accommodations that change the measurement of a skill being tested are not permitted on the NY State Mathematics Test. Testing accommodations in students’ IEPs or 504 Plans that are reading related— for example, reading the test to the student—are permitted for the NY State Mathematics Test. However, test questions must never be changed or simplified, nor may the school provide additional examples. 

Because the NY State Mathematics Test assesses students’ ability to calculate, the use of a calculator or mathematical tables are not allowed for Grade 4. Students whose IEPs or 504 Plans specify the use of an abacus will be allowed to use such an item with this test.
