State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson is supporting legislation in California to suspend some standardized tests while new computerized exams are being developed, a move that would save the state $15 million. Lawmakers now are considering legislation that would suspend some tests beginning next fall, as well as a separate bill that would delay the suspension until 2016. Tests required by the federal government would not be suspended.
