Required Test Administrator Training

Required test administrator training for NYSAA teachers participating in 2021-22 testing will be conducted by the Alternate Assessment Training Network for teachers who work outside of New York City. NYC teachers will receive training through the school building in which they work. Your AATN will announce the details for the training.
