Several panels of independent experts have reviewed Regents exams considering issues of content, accuracy of material, scoring procedures, alignment with standards, rubrics and the quality of student responses. They have also considered student work produced in schools using a system of performance assessment.
The Center for Inquiry has convened five panels to review the content and construction of Regents exams in English, History and Science.
4 Critiqued Regents Exams:
Living Environment -- Regents Review
