Deception by NYSED about the state field tests?

There's lots of controversy about next month's NY state field tests, and due to be given next month in all public schools statewide, in certain grades and subjects.
Most parents still do not know about these exams, but those who do are fighting back and some are planning to have their children boycott them.  See the resolution in support of a boycott, passed by CEC 20, and articles in GothamSchools, WSJ, NYT SchoolBook.

To the right is a copy of a memo (click to enlarge) recently sent to high schools by Candace Shyer, head of the NY State Education's Office of State Assessment, which says:

“Students should not be informed of the connection between these fields tests and State assessments.  The field tests should be described as brief test of achievement in the subject.”
