NYS Pretest and Field Test Strands  

Sound procedures for pretesting and field testing are a fundamental component in building a high quality statewide testing program. The New York State Education Department's Office of State Assessment has developed a new pretest and field test sampling method that employs a multi-year sampling matrix. This sampling method randomly assigns every public school in New York State, and those nonpublic schools that participate in the State's testing program to strands. Each strand contains a representative sample of schools, based on needs-resource capacity definitions. Each examination, other than those in Languages Other Than English, is also included and the resulting matrix assigns each examination to a strand. This new sampling method will address the needs of schools in several ways:

  • It gives all schools advance notice of their pretest and field test responsibilities;
  • The matrix system depends on all schools participating in accordance with the strand schedule, thus sharing the responsibility of pretesting and field testing while ensuring an adequate and representative sample; and
  • To the greatest extent possible pretests and field tests have been designed for administration in one class period.
