High school students in Washington won’t be taking standardized tests this spring, with state Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal saying Wednesday that testing will be pushed off until fall.

Reykdal said the time-consuming testing is not the best use of the limited in-person instruction time available at schools this year.

He added that results of testing this spring would not be reliable with so many families still opting out of in-person instruction and instead relying on remote learning.
