Education Department continues to prod states to rethink testing
from U.S. News & World Report
The Department of Education is continuing to press states and school districts to rethink their testing regimens, unveiling a set of proposed assessment regulations under the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act. "Our proposed regulations build on President Barack Obama's plan to strike a balance around testing, providing additional support for states and districts to develop and use better, less burdensome assessments that give a more well-rounded picture of how students and schools are doing, while providing parents, teachers and communities with critical information about students' learning," Education Secretary John King said in a statement.
