Horry County Schools students to field test Smarter Balanced assessment

Students at 29 schools in Horry County are scheduled to take an assessment aligned with the Common Core State Standards, as a proposal moves through the state Legislature that would negate the results.

South Carolina belongs to the Smarter Balanced testing consortium, and the state’s schools are to fully implement Common Core in the fall. A proposal originally intended to repeal the standards would keep Common Core in the classroom but would remove the state from the testing group.
