Text Review Form
The Text Review Form is used by the New York State educators who develop the Regents Exam as a tool to identify those texts that might be candidates for inclusion on operational forms of the Regents Exam in English Language Arts (Common Core).
Educators may consider using the Text Review Form in their own classrooms to ensure the texts their students are using meet the demands of the Common Core and are thus similar to those texts that students will encounter on the Regents Exam and in college and their careers. The Text Review form can be used in tandem with the Guidelines for Text Selection to ensure texts selected for curriculum and/or formative assessment purposes are held to the same standard as the texts included in the Regents Exam in English Language Arts (Common Core). Similarly, the Text Review form can be used in tandem with the Guidelines for Text Selection in professional development opportunities to calibrate adults around understanding the components of quality text selections in curriculum and assessment.
