The DOE shares test results to help families and educators understand the performance of New York City schools in recent years. Keep in mind that test results are just one measurement of student achievement.
You can find more information on the tools, resources, and reports the DOE creates to measure school quality on our School Quality Overview.
Test results are available for grade 3-8 state assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math, New York State Regents exams, SAT, Advanced Placement exams, and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The availability of reports vary by school-year due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and cancellation of exams.
These results along with the results from previous years can also be found on NYC Open Data.
