AB 484 (Bonilla – D)

Re-authorization bill for the state’s student assessment program. Authorizes the Superintendent to not provide API scores for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years, while the state transitions to new assessment and accountability systems. Establishes the Measurement of Academic Performance & Progress (MAPP) to succeed the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. Beginning in the 2013-14 school year, the bill would also suspend all STAR assessments until common core-aligned assessments are implemented.
