NJ Senate delays vote on test consequences

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey state Senate is giving Gov. Chris Christie more time to work out a compromise on how to slow down use of a new standardized test to judge teachers’ performance.

Sen. Jeff Van Drew says the Senate will not vote Thursday on his bill to delay consequences of the tests developed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, which students are scheduled to begin taking next year.

Under state law, how much students improve on the tests will be used as a factor in evaluating the effectiveness of teachers.

But some say they want to see how the exams work first.

Van Drew says teachers and Christie’s administration are working on details of an executive order to phase in the tests’ consequences.
