Intermediate Level Science Assessment:  Questions and Answers

This document includes frequently asked questions (and their answers) related to the Intermediate Level Science Assessment Performance Test.  This document was mailed to Intermediate Level Science Assessment Liaisons (SALs) and the STANYS Subject Area Representatives (SARs) in November 2000.

The first two pages of this document are the cover memo as sent to the SALs and SARs.  A New York State Education Department memo describing the new Grade 8, Intermediate Level Science Test and a sheet of related information is located at the end of the document.

These documents may be copied and used in local workshops.

Any questions or concerns may be directed to me at:
