New York, NY - On Wednesday, September 26th, the Department of Education (DOE) announced that parents can now access their child’s 2018 Common Core Exam scores. According to the New York State Education Department, 45.2% of all test takers in grades 3-8 scored at the proficient level (Levels 3 and 4) in ELA. In math, 44.5% of all test takers in grades 3-8 scored at the proficient level. Due to the State’s new two-session test design and performance standards, the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and math results cannot be compared to prior-year results. In previous years, students took their state exams in three sessions. The new baseline established this year will enable comparisons with student scores in 2019 and 2020.
Scoring well on Common Core exams help to strengthen students’ middle school or high school applications. For 5th graders who score well on their state exam, they may be eligible to take the Hunter Exam for admittance into Hunter College High School. Hunter College High School is a selective and elite school that admits students from the 6th grade. Khan’s Tutorial has already started its Hunter Program and suggests 5th graders in particular report their scores to their KT branch leaders.
In order to access the scores parents need their login information. If parents do not have an account, they can set one up with their child's Student ID Number (can be found on report cards) and an Account Creation Code (provided by the child's school). Parents can also visit their child's school with a photo ID and email address to set up an account.

Khan’s Tutorial urges parents to contact their local branches with their child’s score as soon as possible. For reporting scores, Khan’s will award the child with a FREE KT class, regardless of their score. In addition, if the child received at least one 4, their name will also be featured in the press and they will be invited to attend Khan’s Tutorial’s Annual Awards Ceremony at the Colden Center at Queens College. The ceremony is slated for late November or early December.
“We are all very excited to hear back from our students and know how they performed! The state test scores represent the culmination of months of hard work and we can't wait to celebrate this achievement with our KT Common Core families during our Annual Awards Ceremony!” says Nadia Hossain, Director of Common Core Department.
“On behalf of our entire team at Khan's Tutorial, I congratulate all of the proud Common Core families across Khan's that will be receiving the news about their perfect scores on the Spring 2018 New York State Common Core exams.
Every year, parents of children grades K-8 enroll their children at Khan's to master grade level proficiency in their ELA & Math Subjects. Many parents within the South Asian community have learned of the importance of scoring a perfect score 4 out of 4 in ELA & Math.
For new third grade families, this will be the first year that they are being tested through state exams. For fourth grade families, their NYS scores can determine the best junior high school for their child. For fifth and sixth graders, master of their ELA, Math & even Writing subjects have helped thousands of Khan's students into top high schools, both Specialized & Screened.
To all Kindergarten through Grade 8 families, I urge all parents to log into their child's school portal on-line, retrieve their child's scores, and call Khan's to report their child's score. As always, we look forward to celebrating with perfect score families in our Annual Achievement Awards this November/December,” says Dr. Ivan Khan, CEO & President of Khan's Tutorial.
