Md. moves away from PARCC testing, toward new state exams

Dec 27, 2018 by

WASHINGTON — Next fall, when Maryland students head to class, they won’t be facing the PARCC exams, but they’ll still have to be ready for state-mandated testing.

The Maryland Board of Public Works voted 2-1 to spend $36 million to develop new tests for students in third through 11th grades in a five-year contract.

The board, made up of Gov. Larry Hogan, state Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot, voted 2-1 in favor of the plan.

Franchot objected, saying he thinks the SATs should replace the PARCC exam at the high school level.
