Feds Approve California's New Standardized Tests

Feds Approve California's New Standardized Tests
Posted Friday, March 7th 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News

Federal education officials have approved California's plan to make way for a massive rollout of new standardized tests this spring by doing away with the assessments the state's public school students have taken in reading, math and social science since 1999.

The U.S. Department of Education said the state's proposal to replace its Standardized Testing and Reporting, or STAR tests with an experimental trial run of the new computer-based language and math tests makes sense since the replacement assessments more accurately mirror the lessons teachers have been giving this year.
