## Early Elementary Assessments

For the purposes of APPR, there are no K-2 standardized tests administered or required by the State*. Decisions about how to measure student progress in K-2 are made by local school districts and BOCES. Education Law §3012-c provides districts and BOCES with design flexibility and assessment options. This document is intended for districts and BOCES seeking opportunities to reduce and/or refine assessments used in early elementary grades and subjects.
