Required State Assessment For Ninth-grade Students

Concerning requiring a single statewide end-of-year assessment for students enrolled in ninth grade that is aligned with the tenth-grade state assessment, and, in connection therewith, reducing an appropriation.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subject:
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
Bill Summary

Under existing law, each local education provider must administer the state assessments in math and English language arts to ninth-grade students and must administer a state-selected assessment to tenth-grade students. The bill repeals the requirement to administer the state assessment to ninth-grade students. Instead, local education providers must administer a state-selected ninth-grade assessment that is aligned with the ninth-grade content standards and the assessment administered to tenth-grade students. The department of education must ensure that, under the testing schedule, ninth-grade students take the state-selected assessment in the spring semester.
