Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Wednesday announced that he is seeking increased flexibility for school districts as they work to make the transition to new computerized tests that are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Among other things, Malloy proposed that the state be given an additional year for districts to make the transition -- allowing them to avoid double-testing students -- and be granted flexibility from the federal government in using the new test scores to evaluate teachers.
