Moratorium Approved To Suspend Use Of Standardized Tests In Teacher Evaluations
New York education leaders have suspended the use of standardized test scores in teacher evaluations for four years while the State revises the Common Core learning standards and related testing. The moratorium was approved by the policy-making Board of Regents in Albany Tuesday. It was recommended by Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Common Core Task Force last week and has been vigorously sought by teachers for much longer.
