Gov. Jack Markell (D-Delaware) is expected to take executive action to review all statewide testing required of Delaware schools.
Markell notes that the recent switch to the Smarter Balanced Assessment already reduces the amount of testing for Delaware students, but that more might need to be done.
“I think this issue of taking a look at the amount of testing across the state makes a lot of sense and you’ll be hearing more from us about that soon,” he said.
Markell didn’t elaborate on when any action might be taken or what form that might take.
