“I am grateful to all districts for their hard work on the field test,” said Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp. “One of the primary purposes of the field test was to work out technical issues. Now, we’re much better positioned for a smooth experience when the test is fully operational next year. And students have a better idea of what will be expected of them on these assessments. We’re hearing students found the tests challenging, and that is to be expected with more rigorous standards. I know our students will rise to meet that challenge.”
