Removal of Three Substitute Tests

 

 

At its April 28, 2004, meeting the Virginia Board of Education voted to remove three tests from its list of approved substitute tests. The ACT Science Reasoning Subtest which was previously adopted as a substitute test for the Standards of Learning end-of-course tests in Biology or Chemistry was removed as were the ACT: PLAN Reading test and the ACT: PLAN Mathematics tests which had been adopted as substitutes for the literacy and numeracy requirements of the modified standard diplomas.
