Maryland State School Superintendent Karen Salmon is recommending all public schools give the new statewide test in reading and math for the first time this spring, but scaling back the total amount of testing. Salmon is recommending testing students in reading and math in grades three through eight and high school, according to documents posted on the state education department website. Those exams could take more than seven hours, but Salmon is proposing the state not give tests in science and other subjects.
