Md. moves away from PARCC testing, toward new state exams

December 26th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

 Next fall, when Maryland students head to class, they won’t be facing the PARCC exams, but they’ll still have to be ready for state-mandated testing. The Maryland Board of Public Works voted 2-1 to spend $36 million to develop new tests for students in third through 11th grades in a five-year contract. The board, made up of Gov. Larry Hogan, state Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot, voted 2-1 in favor of the plan. Franchot objected, saying he thinks the SATs should replace the PARCC exam at the high school level.
