Va. School Board Adopts Stricter Math Assessments

March 23, 2012

Math assessments for Virginia students will be harder under revisions adopted by the state Board of Education.

Media outlets report that the board unanimously adopted more rigorous Standards of Learning math tests for grades three through eight on Thursday.

Algebra and geometry tests for middle and high school students were revised earlier.

School superintendents, teachers and students from around Virginia objected to the revisions.

Gloucester County Superintendent Ben Kiser said schools will be labeled failures because students won't meet the higher standards.
