CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A new standardized test might come to Wyoming public schools.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1WRtexB ) that State Board of Education is recommending a change to standardized tests so that they better align with state education standards.

The current Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students are taken in third through eighth grade, but the proposed exam would be administered through 10th grade.

A state task force recommended the change after studying the state’s assessments. The Board of Education met Thursday to review the task force’s findings, which will be included in a larger report that will be submitted to state lawmakers later this month.

The task force also recommended that the new test be similar to an assessment in at least one other state.
