Students take Periodic Assessments several times throughout the school year to give teachers more information about what students have learned. Teachers use these assessments—along with other school work and what they see in class—to learn where students need more help. The New York City DOE does not use Periodic Assessment results to grade children or schools. The DOE offers several types of Periodic Assessments for grades K-12. Subjects include:
Families can call the school’s Parent Coordinator to learn more about their child's Periodic Assessment scores.
Educators can find much more information about the assessments on the Periodic Assessment page of the intranet.
