Idaho Students to Face Common Core Tests This Year

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho students have already been exposed to the state’s latest education measures, but this school year they will be asked to take a standardized test aligned with the Idaho Common Core for which the results will be collected and made public.

Students, parents and educators got a taste of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium examination last year when the state rolled out practice tests. Those results weren’t released, though, because officials wanted to give everyone enough time to work out the kinks of the new system.

The examination is an adaptive test, meaning the questions will differ between students. Those who answer initial questions correctly will be given tougher questions, while students who do a poor job of answering the initial questions will be given easier questions.
