HB 2037, a bill filed in the Arizona House of Representatives, if passed would not require high school juniors to take AzMerit or the AIMS Science test. Instead, they would take a college-readiness exam like ACT or SAT.
High school juniors in West Virginia will take the SAT college entrance exam instead of the Smarter Balanced Assessment starting in Spring of 2018.
The Oregon Department of Education confirmed that they will no longer use Smarter Balanced for 11th Grade, but will continue using it in 3rd-8th Grades
Reuters just released an investigative report that does not paint David Coleman, CEO of the College Board, in a very good light after his SAT redesign.
The Classic Learning Test provides a college entrance exam that is a better measurement for students who have rejected the Common Core State Standards.
Vector ARC, an alternative to the Common Core-aligned college entrance exams ACT and SAT, could be available soon for homeschoolers and other students.
Since David Coleman’s tenure with the College Board began they have been faced with one controversy after another that is largely of Coleman’s making.
