DENVER (AP) — The state Department of Education has announced that Colorado high school juniors will be required to take the SAT college-entrance exam instead of the ACT starting this spring.
The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1VaThhT ) that officials say a selection committee chose The College Board, which makes the SAT, over the ACT testing company. Colorado juniors have been taking the ACT since 2001.
High school sophomores will also begin taking the PSAT. Testing reform legislation says sophomores and juniors will no longer take PARCC English and math tests, which were implemented last spring.
