New "Directions for Administering Regents Examinations June and August 2017 Administrations". 

In the section "Supervision of Students", please look at item 7 on page 7 of 17.  It is copied below with the modification from the past version underlined:

7. Preserving the Integrity of the Test Materials. Staff is not permitted to discuss test questions or other specific test content with others online via e-mail or LISTSERV, or through any other electronic means prior to or during the test administration period or until one week after the conclusion of the examination period. For June 2017, the administration period ends June 23; therefore, the specific test content must not be discussed or shared electronically prior to June 30, 2017.


In the past, the LISTSERVs have been a forum for discussions of particular items from recently administered Regents exams.  We want you to be aware of this change in the Directions for Administering Regents Exams so teachers can avoid issues with this new policy effective June 2017.
