NYSAA ELA, Math & Science Administration Training for Returning Test Administrators
February 4, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm EST$50
Cost: $50 per participant
Lunch NOT provided
Although the training is scheduled for a half day, staff is welcome to stay beyond 12:00 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 exam.
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.
Before attending the training:
All staff will need to have rosters created and students assigned before the training.
Grade 3 – ELA and Math
Grade 4 – ELA, Math & Science
Grade 5 – ELA and Math

Please bring to the training:
- A list of students/DOB and have access to their IEPs.

- Have your educator portal log-in information – new test administrators, make sure you have activated your account.
- Please do not do anything else before the training.
Use this updated age range chart (2019-2020) to verify if a student is eligible to take the NYSAA exam this year and what grade level test they will need to take.
Please be sure that the current version of Kite Student Portal is installed before the test administration period begins. (You do not need this before training).
