Macon, GA –  Georgia students could soon have fewer standardized tests.

A bill proposed by the Senate would require only 24 standardized test instead of 32.

If passed, the legislature would make test results play less of a  role in teacher and administrator evaluations.

Currently students take Georgia Milestones assessments from third grade thru twelfth.

The new bill would eliminate some science and social studies exams and add a different form of reading and math.
