Ohio receives waiver to eliminate double testing in elementary and middle schools

The U.S. Department of Education has approved the Ohio Department of Education’s request for a waiver from “double testing” students below ninth grade who are taking high school-level courses for credits. The waiver, which only applies to the 2014-2015 school year, requires these students in elementary and middle school to test above their grade levels – in the high school-level courses they took for credit – and prohibits them from taking the assessments for the courses at their current grade levels.
