California students and teachers could receive a one-year reprieve from standardized-testing requirements that have become a part of school culture each spring.

A plan introduced in the state legislature last week would end the use of state tests in math and English for the school year already underway—a year earlier than planned.

In their place, schools could opt in to computer-based assessments aligned to the new common-core standards. Any district could opt in to the computer-based tests this school year.

Gov. Jerry Brown's office offered strong support for the bill last week.
