State board cancels Indiana CoreLink test for May

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana students won’t be taking a test this May that was meant to help transition to new education standards.

The State Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday to cancel the upcoming test.

Department of Education officials said the CoreLink test could prepare students for a new exam that will come with new education standards, but some board members worry it could cause unnecessary stress.

Indiana this year became the first state to stop using the national education standards known as Common Core. The state is set to adopt new standards April 28.

Education officials are grappling with how to assess those new standards. The board delayed a decision on whether to use the 20-question CoreLink test later this year.
