The New York State Education Department (NYSED), as part of its implementation of the provisions of Education Law §3012-c regarding annual professional performance reviews (APPR) of classroom teachers and building principals, has posted its List of Approved Student Assessments for Use by School Districts and BOCES in Teacher and Principal Evaluations (“List of Assessments“) that meet the technical criteria established in our Request for Qualification (RFQ). NYSED will continue to review submissions received after the June 17, 2011 RFQ deadline; however, those assessments will not be added to the List of Assessments until the next periodic update. NYSED will update the List of Assessments at least annually.

To review the list of NYSED approved student assessments, and for more information on implementation and use of the assessments, please visit:
