Now that Idaho finally has a new set of science standards, the state needs to align its test to the standards.
That’s the job of a group of teachers, meeting in Boise this week.
The teachers represent all parts of the state, and teach at the elementary, junior high school and high school levels. They will look at updating the tests students will take beginning in 2019-20.
The update is necessary because the 2018 Legislature approved new science standards, after a three-year debate.
The teachers are meeting at the Hampton Inn in Downtown Boise, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
