Opt-outs from state standard test on math, 2018

At least 71,842 Long Island public school students in grades 3-8 opted out of taking the state math exam during the week of April 30, 2018.

At least 71,842 Long Island public school students in grades 3-8 opted out of taking the state math exam during the week of April 30, 2018, according to data gathered from individual districts. The number represents 46.2 percent of the eligible students in the districts that provided data. The rate was higher in Suffolk, 52.8 percent, than it was in Nassau, 38.9 percent.

Not all districts reported results, and those rows are blank in the table. Students who were reported absent were not included, and the figures include students in some grades taking computer-based tests. Students in some grades were able to take Regents algebra or geometry tests instead of taking the standardized state exams.

Here are results from the 2017 math test. And here is data on the number of students opting out of English exams earlier this year. This database was updated on May 4, 2018.
