SY 23-24 Mock Regents
Regents Readiness Support
Administering mock Regents exams provides valuable data for assessing student readiness, building student confidence, and improving student performance on the actual Regents exams. The Portal by New Visions offers support to leaders and teachers with analyzing mock Regents data! By gaining insights into the tested concepts and skills that students already use well and those that need strengthening before the year-end exam, school teams can plan interventions and programming so that teachers can make responsive instructional decisions during the remaining time before the exam.
Support for Mock Regents
Practice Regents Administration
New Visions will support the administration of Mock Regents beginning in March 2024.
Mock Regents offered this year will support student readiness for Regents exams in six courses:
- Algebra I
- Living Environment, Earth Science
- Global History & Geography II, US History & Government
- English Language Arts
We will use the June 2023 editions of these Regents Examinations as our mock exam in Spring 2024. School teams should set aside sufficient time to print testing materials, for students to take the exam(s), and for teachers to score constructed response questions and essays. Most essentially, school teams must set aside adequate time to analyze and understand the data in order to develop a meaningful plan for action in the remaining time before the actual exam.
NOTE: In order to focus limited resources on improving the Portal-based process for data analysis and planning, we will not support mock Regents in Geometry, Algebra II, Chemistry, or Physics in Spring 2024.
Data Analysis and Planning
Data from Mock Regents will be available in the Portal beginning in April 2024, ready for analysis and planning.
We heard your feedback! In April 2024, expect an updated process for uploading your mock Regents data into the Portal. Our team will be on hand to support you through the process so that you can view your mock Regents data in the Portal.
New Visions will host virtual workshops on how to use the updated mock Regents Portal features in March and April – stay tuned for registration links!
Content-specific professional learning on analyzing mock Regents data and developing responsive instructional supports will be offered as part of the various programs the Curriculum & Instruction team are offering this year. See advance.newvisions.org to learn more!

Mini-Mock Regents Pilot
Selected New Visions projects will pilot a mini-mock Regents tool in SY 23-24.
New Visions is creating a mini-mock Regents tool with interim assessments aligned to shared curricula and drawing on past Regents items. This mini-mock sequence will culminate in the spring full mock Regents, thereby providing year-long support for student success on the end-of-year exams. School teams participating in specific math and science programs will be invited to participate in the pilot, providing mini-mock assessments first in early November and again in mid-January. New Visions will share more information with invited school teams to sufficiently plan for each mini-mock opportunity.
|Full Mock Regents
|Late October - Early November 2023

New Visions anticipates rolling out the mini-mock Regents tool more widely in SY 2024-25.
