TRENTON, N.J.  (CBS) — New Jersey’s State Board of Education is getting rid of some standardized tests for 10th graders. The board voted to eliminate the Garden State Assessment tests in English and math for sophomores starting in 2023.

Some on the board have been looking to reduce the number of tests students take while still complying with laws that require tests in 9th and 11th grade.
