EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Some Indiana educators say they're worried that the state's fast-paced approach to developing new student-assessment tests could create challenges across all grade levels.
The Indiana Education Roundtable adopted policy recommendations Monday for the state's new testing program under academic standards adopted in April.
Some State Board of Education members told Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz later Monday they don't feel informed about Indiana's efforts to maintain its No Child Left Behind waiver.
Federal education officials say the new test would have to be given this year for Indiana to maintain its waiver from the federal law.
Evansville Teachers Association President Mark Lichtenberg tells the Evansville Courier & Press that the full impact on students and teachers of implementing the new standards and assessments are a "cause for concern."
