To graduate from high school in Washington state, students must pass five exit exams -- algebra, geometry, biology, reading and writing. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn is suggesting a change to three amid concerns that requiring five tests for graduation is too much, especially with Common Core State Standards set to roll out in 2015. "That's too much time from instruction, too much time out of the classroom for assessment, and I believe it's too much money invested in it," Dorn said.
Are Wash. high-school students taking too many exit exams?
