Assessments and Data

The New York State Education Department no longer produces the LOTE Checkpoint A and B examinations.  These exams are now developed at the local level by schools, districts and consortia. Archives of past examinations (2002 - 2011) for both Checkpoints are available at the links below.   These past examinations may be used for practice with students, however, best practice dictates that publicly available exam content should not be used on final exams students take to earn Checkpoint A and B credit.
