Not as many SOL tests for some students. That’s what will happen if a bill passed by the House of Delegates (pictured) makes it all the way through the General Assembly.

Greater emphasis would be placed on problem solving, critical thinking and knowledge-application skills instead of preparing for multiple choice questions.
