DENVER (AP) - The Senate Education Committee is taking a hard look at legislation to do away with comprehensive student tests and replace them with student assessments.

The legislation would end CSAP testing in the ninth, tenth and 11th grades and replace them with what lawmakers say is a more meaningful college readiness curriculum.

The committee on Friday delayed action until Monday after the Colorado Department of Education raised objections. Educators said they would have to change standards again next year once a national review is completed.

Supporters of the plan say replacing the tests with a nationally recognized college readiness and career exploration curriculum will save money and provide more information to help student progress.
