DENVER (AP) - The Senate Education Committee has approved 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.

Educators opposed the change, saying they would have to change standards again next year once a national review is completed.

The bill now goes to the full House for debate.

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.
