Schools' Math Test Missing Pages

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP/WBEN) - Some of the math tests being given to students as part of New York's annual statewide assessments are missing questions.

Thursday marked the second day of the annual three-day math assessments for students in grades three through eight in New York's nearly 700 school districts.

The tests measure student progress but also factor into annual teacher evaluations.

State education officials say a version of the third-grade test given Thursday is missing some questions because of an apparent printing error.

Spokesman Tom Dunn says no test has been invalidated and the error affects only one of four forms of the third-grade test.

The state says at the very least it caused troubles in Hamburg and Clarence and Frontier districts in WNY but informally there are reports the list could include several other districts. Approx 100 districts were affected statewide.

Dunn says schools were advised of possible solutions, including giving students a different version of the test or having them complete it during next week's make-up period.

Erie 1 Boces was able to provide most districts with a complete back up copy of the tests.
