A new High School Equivalency (HSE) Test called TASC™ (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) replaced the GED® Test in 2014.
The TASC™ is a High School Equivalency (HSE) national examination developed by CTB/ McGraw Hill. The test is available to adults who did not graduate from high school or whose diplomas may not be recognized by New York State. In New York State, the TASC™ is offered in English and Spanish.
When candidates pass the TASC™ test in Spanish in New York State, they receive a high school equivalency diploma with a designation of Spanish.
There are five tests in the TASC™ test Battery: Reading; Writing; Social Studies; Science; and Mathematics. The tests take approximately nine hours to complete and include a direct writing assessment. To ensure that the content and skills measured by the tests remain closely matched to contemporary high school curriculum, the tests undergo regular review.
What We Do: Since 1973, NCCRS (formerly National PONSI) has been evaluating training and education programs offered outside of the traditional college classroom setting and translating them into college credit equivalencies.
How We Do It: NCCRS coordinates teams of college faculty evaluators and subject matter experts to conduct extensive reviews of education and training programs offered by corporations, unions, religious organizations and proprietary schools.
Why We Do It: We strive to help working adults and other students earn credit for learning acquired outside of the college classroom. Over 1,500 Cooperating Colleges and Universities will consider granting actual college credit based on our credit recommendations and in accordance with their own transfer policies.
The New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) is a part of the New York State Testing Program. Starting with the 2013-14 administration, the NYSAA is based on a new test design with requirements that reflect the updated assessment. The NYSAA is a datafolio-style assessment in which students with severe cognitive disabilities demonstrate their performance toward achieving the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards in English language arts and mathematics. In addition, this assessment measures the New York State Learning Standards and Core Curriculum in science and social studies. Eligibility for participation in NYSAA is determined by the Committee on Special Education (CSE) according to criteria described in the Administrators’ Manual. Student performance is recorded through direct observation and documentation and may include other information such as student work products, photographs, audio and videotapes. Students must be assessed once a year beginning in the school year they become 9 years old through the school year they become 14 (grade equivalents 3-8). The secondary level NYSAA is administered during the school year they become 17-18 years of age (high school).
The New York State Archives was established in 1971 and opened its doors to the public in 1978. It is a program of the State Education Department, with its main facility located in the Cultural Education Center on Madison Avenue in Albany. There it cares for and provides access to more than 200 million documents that tell the story of New York from the seventeenth century to the present.
From its main facility, it also administers statewide programs that reach out to state agencies, local governments and community organizations.
Archives staff are located in nine regional offices around the State to address the archives and records management concerns of every area of the State.
The Regents are responsible for the general supervision of all educational activities within the State, presiding over The University and the New York State Education Department.
The University of the State of New York is the nation’s most comprehensive and unified educational system. It consists of all elementary, secondary, and postsecondary educational institutions, libraries, museums, public broadcasting, records and archives, professions, Adult Career and Continuing Education Services, and such other institutions, organizations, and agencies as may be admitted to The University. The concept of The University of the State of New York is a broad term encompassing all the institutions, both public and private, offering education in the State.
The New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) are internationally-benchmarked and evidence-based standards. These standards serve as a consistent set of expectations for what students should learn and be able to do, so that we can ensure that every student across New YorkState is on track for college and career readiness. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) will continue to develop educator resources to support the successful implementation of the CCLS in classrooms across New York State over the next several years.
New York began statewide registration of births, marriages, and deaths (“vital records”) in 1880-81, under supervision of the State and local boards of health. Compliance with the law was incomplete until 1913 or even later; therefore certificates are lacking for many events.
Several of the State’s larger cities recorded vital events for varying periods of time prior to 1880; see below for more information. An 1847 law required the school districts in each town to collect vital statistics. They ceased doing so after a few years. (The State Archives and State Department of Health hold no records created under the 1847 law.)
The New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) is designed to annually assess the English proficiency of all English language learners enrolled in Grades K–12 in New York State schools. The exam gives the State and schools important information about the English language development of English language learners (ELLs), and is part of the State’s compliance with federal laws that mandate the annual assessing and tracking of English proficiency of English language learners.
The Library serves three major constituencies:
The Research Library, which was established in 1818, collects, preserves and makes available materials that support State government work. The Library’s collections, now numbering over 20 million items, may also be used by other researchers on-site, online and via interlibrary loan.
The Talking Book and Braille Library (TBBL) lends braille and recorded books and magazines, and related equipment to residents of the 55 upstate counties of New York State who are unable to read printed materials because of a visual or physical disability.
The Division of Library Development works in partnership with 73 library systems to bring library services to the millions of people who use New York’s academic, public, school and special libraries. Library Development also administers State and Federal grant programs that provide aid for library services.
The New York State Museum serves the lifelong educational needs of New Yorkers and visitors through its collections, exhibitions, scholarship, programs, media and publications in science, history, anthropology, and art. The Museum explores and expresses New York State’s significant natural and cultural diversity, past and present.
