SALT LAKE CITY — Standardized testing has been suspended for Utah K-12 schools this spring in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
The Utah Board of Education voted to lift the assessment requirement Thursday with a unanimous vote.
“I think this is key,” said board member Jennie Earl, who represents Morgan County. “It will help clear up some of the stress that teachers and administrators are feeling.”
Already, 36 other states are doing the same.
