## REGENTS LANGUAGE ARTS

### Part I: Reading Comprehension

This part of the exam requires reading of two to three texts and will contain at least one literature and one informational text, followed by 24 multiple choice questions.

### Part II: Writing From Sources - Argument

This part of the exam includes reading of two to five texts, with an emphasis on informational texts and may contain graphics or one literature text. Students will compose an essay of argument with a claim based on the sources.

### Part III: Text Analysis

Students will perform a reading of one informational or literary text and write a two to three paragraph response that identifies a central idea in the text and analyzes how the author’s use of one writing strategy develops that central idea.

Each of the three parts of the Regents Examination in English Language Arts (Common Core) has a number of raw score credits associated with the questions/tasks within that part. In order to ensure an appropriate distribution of credits across the test, each part is weighted.

For Part 1, each multiple-choice question is worth one point. The Part 2 essay is scored on a 6-point rubric then weighted X 4. The Part 3 Text Analysis is scored on a 4-point rubric and then weighted X 2. Both rubrics reflect the new demands called for by the Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy through the end of Grade 11.

There are four qualities in the rubrics. They are:

- Content and Analysis:
- The extent to which the response convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately in order to respond to the task and support an analysis of the text.

- Command of Evidence
- The extent to which the response presents evidence from the provided text to support analysis.

- Coherence, Organization, and Style
- The extent to which the response logically organizes complex ideas, concepts, and information using formal style and precise language.

- Control of Conventions
- The extent to which the response demonstrates command of conventions of standard English grammar, usage, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling.
