Public Comments for: SB1401 - Standards of Learning; reduces total number & type of required assessments to minimum requirements.

Good Afternoon! I support any bill that would reduce the number of Standard of Learning Assessments for students. By doing this, it would allow educators to spend measuring student growth in other ways and not spending time preparing students for an end of the year assessment. Staff could spend time developing and implementing performance based assessments and other assessment that give a "clearer" picture of student growth. Any reduction in state mandated test would be appreciated. Thanks!
