Computer-Based Testing (CBT)

The New York State Education Department continues to transition to computer-based testing (CBT) as part of its commitment to both meeting the needs of 21st century learners and improving test delivery, test integrity, scoring validity, and turn-around time on testing results.

Beginning with 2016, New York State started administering some statewide assessments on computer. For specific information on Grades 3 – 8 English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics computer-based tests, stand-alone field tests on computer, or for the ELA and Mathematics computer-based sections of the NYSAA, please select the corresponding page on the left navigation bar.
