Laramie, Wy – Students in Wyoming schools will soon take a new assessment test. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Trent Blankenship, announced he is developing a new test that will be put in place during the next school year.
Blankenship says this test will be much better than the current one and it should be less culturally biased because they will design it with people from the reservation and with Spanish speakers.
Blankenship admits the current test is culturally biased. He says it also does not provide results in a timely manner and doesn't provide teachers with feedback to help deal with individual student needs.
