good job all
|By Monoe (Monoe) on Friday, June 25, 2004 - 10:10 pm: Edit|
Sandwraith, that's not very nice. Sure, the Regents are easy, but think where they come from. New York State wants to report good statistics, so it creates a test that is easy to pass. Whether or not that's valid, doesn't matter. I'm just saying, that's why they are the way they are.
|By Bethlikesun (Bethlikesun) on Friday, June 25, 2004 - 10:19 pm: Edit|
Monoe: Well said.
Sandwraith: Not every student in NY public schools is reflected by those at CC.
Crazykidd: Regents are the New York state standardized tests.
Where in NY are you?

Just got my report card..
Those were the only 2 I took this year.
I know they aren't the hardest tests in the world, but it is still nice to do well, most kids in my school don't.

does anybody know the answer to the question on this years chem regents about o2 verus 03 and the physical/chemical properties??

www.nysedregents.org has all regents including this year's.

i dont get my report card for at least another week. however, I think i failed the english one. on the global warming essay, i wrote about how biased and inaccurate the article was, and how the NYS board of regents was stupid to use it.... lol
|By Monoe (Monoe) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 10:35 am: Edit|
Yellow - it was different physical and different chemical properties. Chemical formula changes everything. Think about it - Na and Cl are very different from NaCl, bonded. o3 is ozone - as in, dangerous, burning. We breathe o2.

Why do you people brag and care about regents? They dont count for college and are useless unless you want a Regents Diploma...
|By Sulskman (Sulskman) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 11:21 am: Edit|
If you want to go to a SUNY and get money, it does count. (Just went to Binghamton the other day and asked about regents) With so many kids applying from NY, colleges are going to see that all kids from our state took this one test and it is a good measure of what you know, probably better than the SAT! It also comes in handy if you come from a school that inflates grades, like mine. If you come from a school in which more than 50% of the class has a 95 average but you have good regents grades then you show the colleges your grades are not inflated because you know the material.
|By Yellow (Yellow) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 11:21 am: Edit|
people care b/c if you are taking the test you might as well do a good job...and they don't count for college but colleges see the number grade you got so it wouldn't look very good to get an a in the class and then a 80 on the regents...also, in NY you need to pass the min. amount to get ANY diploma, not just a regents diploma...
|By Newyorker (Newyorker) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 11:46 am: Edit|
Yeah, but it will not matter at all, maybe a negligible amount. And almost everyone passes minimum. I am sure colleges know about the statistics of the regents and how dumbed down they are.
You people are saying this, because you think you know. Many people i know told me they counted for nothing. I mean, I have my share of 90s and 80s also, but there are bigger fish to fry. I understand doing well, but if you get an 80, the only thing hurt is your pride.
|By Yellow (Yellow) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 11:58 am: Edit|
but the thing is...since they are so easy to pass...getting an 80 looks worse then it might on other tests...in truth they really don't matter for anything but colleges do see them
|By Newyorker (Newyorker) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 12:03 pm: Edit|
Yes, but will it be a major concern? I mean, i have everything top notch. APs and all. I got a 95 in Physics and 78 on the exam (lowest mark). Its mostly due to careless mistakes and a bad teacher. What can I say? I took Bio in 7th and got 81. This is in 10th grade. All exuses, but it doesnt matter. Fact is, one or two grades beneath expectations wont kill you. Especially when you have like 90,100,97,97,91,89 next to them. I mean, they dont matter to me. They aren't rigorous and challenging. There are more important factors, no?
We as NYs strive to do better than average, surely u must know about regents and their dumbed down levels. They are a mockery.
|By Yellow (Yellow) on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 04:04 pm: Edit|
there are more important factors but as you said the regents are dumbed down...so why would you WANT an 81...it won't kill you and its over with now...but like always the higher the grade the better it is...

Wait, what's the grading scale? And what's considered passing? And what are they used for?

Are your regents on your transcript? I have kids who graduated from highschool in NY, took the Regents, but those scores were not included on the college transcript. For programs and schools where you wanted them, you had to ask for them separately (actually their schools were good about that and made sure anyone who was remotely in consideration for such awards did get the results automatically sent). For the SUNY schools, bad Regents are not going to offset an otherwise sterling package. The only problem with Regents scores is that if they are out of synch (negatively) from the rest of your package, highly selective schools that are looking to thin the applications may dwell on them, some without a handle on their significance. You won't get a request for them if you do not send them. It is not a line item on the assessment checklist for adcoms.
