Castle Learning has just released the latest assessments for New York State. You can find the exam in the Public Assignments in the course: English. With the recent advancements made on the Castle Learning site students and teachers are now able to view ALL parts of the exam in one assignment. Prior to this adjustment teachers could only put one reading passage selection into an assignment, which prevented them from creating a “mock” NYS exam. Now students can take all parts of the exam in one assignment including the listening selection.
Castle Learning plans to adjust the previous style of public state assignments to the new format in the future. Castle Learning authors equip each question with a hint and reason so that students can receive immediate instructional feedback (depending on the mode in which the assessment is assigned).
