California Schools Are Rolling Out New Standardized Tests

Schools across California are set to begin administering new standardized tests Tuesday that are designed to demand more of students and offer a clearer picture of how much they are learning.

More than 3 million students will be tested in English and math through June 6, and for the first time, everyone will take the exams on a computer — either tablet, laptop or desktop. All public school students in grades 3 through 8 are supposed to participate, along with some 9th and 10th graders and most 11th graders.
