In 2009 the Board of Regents approved a number of initiatives for the purpose of transforming teaching and learning and school leadership in New York State. One of those initiatives was to strengthen the assessments for the certification of teachers and school leaders, by creation of a teacher performance assessment and increased rigor of the content specialty exams. In May 2010, the Board reaffirmed the direction for the new exams, which includes the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST), the Educating All Students test (EAS), the Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA), and the School Building Leader performance assessment (SBL), as well as revisions to the Content Specialty Tests (CSTs).
