LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The public will get a chance to weigh in on what Michigan's next standardized test for students should look like.
The state Education Departments plans a public hearing about the issue on July 30 in Lansing.
The state is moving away from the Michigan Educational Assessment Program exams that have been around for more than 40 years. The state Education Department planned to administer the Common Core-aligned Smarter Balanced test next school year but ran into resistance from the Legislature.
Lawmakers ordered the state to come up with a replacement MEAP test for next school year and to issue a request for proposals from testing companies for a new test in the 2015-16 academic year.
A two-week public comment period began Tuesday.
