Senate committee approves doing away with CSAPs

DENVER (AP) – The Senate Education Committee has approved legislation to do away with comprehensive student tests and replace them with student assessments.

Lawmakers agreed Monday to study different types of student assessments and look at eliminating the writing test.

“We’re no longer calling them CSAPs, we’re calling them student assessments,” said Sen. Evie Hudak, D-Westminster.

The revised bill will review recommendations from a committee set up by Gov. Bill Ritter to study changes in public education from kindergarten through college.

The bill now goes to the full Senate for debate.
