A group of educators and administrators have been meeting privately for about a year to come up with recommendations for how to change standardized testing in Oregon. As Oregon Chief Education Officer Nancy Golden told OPB's education reporter, Rob Manning, the goal would not be to eliminate such testing — or even get rid of the state's version of the controversial "Common Core" standards. But she says, the group is recommending less of an emphasis on testing and more of focus on in-classroom assessment.

We'll talk with Rob Manning about the details of the group's recommendations and how they might be used by state lawmakers in the legislative session.
