OKLAHOMA CITY– The focus at the Capitol has been on dealing with the budget crisis. Lawmakers did work on other items and one of those included eliminated End of Instruction Testing.
The measure passed both houses and is now on the way to the governor’s desk.
There are seven EOI tests, and students had to pass four out of the seven to graduate.
This law drops those and also eliminates five other state tests that are not required by the federal government.
State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister supported this move and joined Linda Cavanaugh to discuss the issue and why it is good for schools, students and parents.
