College admissions tests do double duty
from Education Week
States are increasingly using college-entrance exams as their high school accountability test, the Education Commission of the States finds in a new report. New Hampshire and Connecticut, for example, made that shift when they opted to require the SAT instead of the Smarter Balanced test for their high school students. The move can reduce layers of testing, since students in some states have had to take required end-of-year or end-of-course tests along with the SAT or ACT.
