"State High School Exit Exams: A Policy in Transition"
States are increasingly aligning their high school exit exams with career- and college-readiness standards, and many will replace their exams with ones developed for the Common Core State Standards, a report says.
The Center on Education Policy, at George Washington University in Washington, annually tracks changes in the high-school-exam landscape. Its new report finds that half the states required students to take exit exams before receiving their high school diplomas in 2011-12—about the same as the previous year.
The report counts 16 states planning to replace their exit exams with the common-core assessments being developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers.
