Maryland granted flexibility so won’t have to double test students

msde logowithoutborderMaryland has received a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education so they won’t have to double test students this year.

State Superintendent Lillian Lowery announced last week that Maryland’s waiver request was approved that will not require schools to field test new state assessments this spring.

“I am very pleased that our federal partners understand the need for flexibility to avoid double-testing students this school year and to allow schools to transition smoothly to the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) statewide assessments in 2015,” Lowery said. “We will continue to communicate with educators and parents as we continue the transition from the current Maryland state assessments to the PARCC assessments, and prepare for full implementation of the new online PARCC assessments next school year, 2014-2015.”
