The Alabama Board of Education has approved changes to the state's assessment testing of high-school students. Instead of one test with several subject sections that students must pass to graduate, exams will be taken at the end of each course. The exam scores will not solely determine a student's final grade or graduation status. In addition, all juniors will be required to take the ACT college-entrance test, which the state schools superintendent said may influence more students to consider college.
