  2. Support

AB 484   (Bonilla D) Support
Pupil assessments: Measurement of Academic Performance and Progress (MAPP).
Location: 10/2/2013 - A .  CHAPTERED
Bill Text
pdf   html
This bill changes the state accountability system to accommodate the transition to Common Core standards and the aligned Smarter Balanced Assessment, and suspends the STAR test in 2013-14. CCSA raised particular concern about the suspension of testing and API for charter schools facing renewal, because statutory renewal criteria are explicitly linked to API scores, ranks and achievement of growth targets. Subsequent amendments to the bill addressed this particular concern. While the Governor is expected to sign this bill, there are many unanswered questions about the impact of test suspension and the implementation of the pilot Smarter Balanced assessment in 2013-14.
