Why prep your child for the NYS ELA Test?
The ELA exam are so important and often difficult to prepare for that it is in your best interest to have your child start his/her own studies sooner rather than later.
As these exams become further aligned with the State and National Common Core Standards, much of what is taught in this class is beneficial not only for take of “teaching for the test,” but will also help your child to succeed in the classroom. Start early and give your child the opportunity to truly develop and be prepared to excel on these tests.
For those applying to Specialized Middle Schools, such as Anderson Middle, NEST+m, Lab, Mark Twain, Millennium, Delta, East Side, and Salk, or Hunter College High School, the scores your child achieves on these exams will take on significant importance as there are often certain preliminary ELA scores necessary to even enter the admissions process for these schools. For example, to have a shot at applying to like Delta, a gifted program at Middle School 54 on the Upper West Side, the children needed to reach Level 4 on both ELA/Math exam, and a combined scale score of 1,385 out of 1,575. At Anderson, one of the city’s most selective middle schools, they needed a 725 on the English test and a 731 on the math test. That means they could get no more than four wrong answers on the English test and five on the math test, making every missed question a costly one. Students who want to take the Hunter College High School test for seventh-grade admission must score high on the fifth-grade standardized tests.
For those applying to New York City’s best public high schools (e.g. Townsend Harris High School, High School for Dual Language and Asian Studies, Baccalaureate School for Global Education) a high ELA/Math score is essential because students are categorized into one of three groups based upon the results of their 7th grade standardized ELA/MATH test score.
