Colorado Senate votes to replace student testing

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Senate has approved legislation to replace comprehensive student tests with student assessments.

Under a measure approved Tuesday, students would be given three assessments: one to see what they know; one to see what they learned during the school year; and one diagnostic test so teachers
can tailor instruction.

Sen. Evie Hudak, D-Westminster says the tests will no longer be called the Colorado Student Assessment Program, or CSAP.

Under the bill, educators will review recommendations from a committee set up by Gov. Bill Ritter to study changes in public education from kindergarten through college.
