    My children took this test this year as well (a non reporting year for us). I was curious if you were able to use this for reporting or was this a non reporting year for you too. I ask because it would be nice to do a direct comparison year to year with this test but I’ll have to use a test from the list in the NYS regs. this coming year (can you ever ask for permission to use alternative tests?).
