CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Senate has passed a bill that would do away with tying teacher evaluations to student test scores.

The measure heads to a conference committee after passing the Senate 25-4 on Monday. The committee will negotiate changes to the bill made by both the House and Senate.

After final approval, the bill would go to Gov. Mark Gordon for his consideration.

Groups including the Wyoming Education Association have lobbied against tying teacher evaluations to student test scores, saying the practice doesn't produce good results.

The bill earlier cleared the House 57-1.
