Williams said that she hopes parents recognize that even with the vetting of the review committee, the tests administered this spring will be a first-year pilot for the state. She said this first review went as well as could be hoped, but she added that she is not yet fully comfortable with her children taking the new test.
"I haven’t decided, but I have a lot more information about which to make that decision," she said.
Parents wishing to review the new test materials will be able to access a series of practice tests that will be posted to the State Office of Education website in December, Jesse said. The practice tests will not include the exact questions students will encounter in April but will be made up of similarly designed questions that are openly accessible to the public.
