Regents math substantive blunders
- While many are focusing on the all-important Regents scoring and appeals issues, the thread of another ongoing story continues...
On this year's Geometry exam, an error in a question was found. An error in wording on the Integrated Algebra question was also found, both errors resulting in the question being discarded and full credit given to all.
We don't know the psychological toll on students when they encounter such errors and are met with "just do the best you can" from proctors when they make inquiries, but such errors seem to be fairly common.
Other errors were found in Geometry: 8/2012, Algebra 2/Trig: 1/2012,
Errors have also occurred in Spanish, Chinese and large-type versions of math exams.
