Beginning in Spring 2024 the new Elementary- and Intermediate-level Science Tests will be administered to students in Grades 5 and 8. These tests are designed to measure students’ understanding of science skills and concepts contained in the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS).
Prior to the written test, students will be expected to participate in a series of Investigation tasks. Investigation tasks are designed to be embedded into instruction and can be offered at any time in the school year.
BOCES 4 Science is providing Investigation Kits for both the Elementary- and Intermediate-level Investigation tasks.
