Colo. House votes to do away with CSAPs
DENVER – The Colorado House voted to do away with comprehensive student tests and replace them with student assessments.
The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. The legislation would end CSAP testing in the 9th, 10th and 11th grades and replace them with what lawmakers say is a more meaningful college readiness curriculum.
Lawmakers 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.
The bill (House Bill 1430) passed out of the House on Thursday on a 47-16 vote.
