HB 166 reduces the number of standardized tests students are required to take and allows school districts to administer locally-developed assessments. The bill reduces the number of grades that a student must take the statewide assessment from six to three. A student would have to take the statewide assessment–currently the Smarter Balanced Assessment–once in elementary school and once in middle school. In other grades, school districts can develop their own assessments to gauge student learning and improve instruction.
