First Common Core test administered
Support Kweller Prep, sponsor of The Classic:
ON JUNE 3, freshmen who began their high school mathematics studies in Algebra Algebra I Regents adjusted to the Common Core Standards, which are state guidelines for math and English. This was to be administered at THHS since the initiative’s launch in 2009. The students also have the Regents exam in addition to the Common Core one. The higher of the two scores may be put on transcript. Freshman Alyssa likes this opportunity “because it gives students two chances to do well. They get an idea of what the next test will include.” When comparing the Common Core Exam to past Regents exams, freshman Michelle Pao felt the Common Core was much easier.
