DENVER (AP) - Colorado is among eight states chosen to have students tested in math and science for a study comparing their performance with students in more than 60 countries.

State education officials said Monday that the U.S. Department of Education chose Colorado, Alabama, California, Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota and North Carolina to participate in the 2011 trends in international mathematics and science study.

In Colorado, a sample of eighth graders in about 50 schools would be tested between April 4 and May 27. Individual test results won't be available, but participating schools will receive school-level reports.

Colorado Department of Education Assessment Director Joyce Zurkowski says there is no cost to the state.
