NYSAA ELA, Math & Science Administration Training for New and Returning Test Administrators

February 2 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am EST

Dates: January 31, 2024 -OR- February 2, 2024

Presenter: Angie Waldron

Workshop times: 8:00 am – 11:30 am

Location:  CVES Instructional Services Center

Cost: $50 charge per participant


Although the training is scheduled for a half day, staff is welcome to stay beyond 11:30 if they would like assistance with or the time to complete the Personal Needs Profile and First Contact Survey required for each student taking the NYSAA.

The training is being combined for new and returning administrators.  This training is being held much later than usual, allowing more time for student and staff uploads into Educator Portal and for Building Test Administrators to create rosters. This also allows for the added benefit of occurring closer to the actual testing period.
