The Ohio House of Representatives has approved House Bill 74 by a 92-1 vote. The bill, sponsored by GOP Rep. Andrew Brenner, would require Ohio to seek and ultimately adopt a new English/language arts and math assessment for the 2015-16 school year. And, according to a bill analysis, it would specifically prohibit multi state consortia like PARCC from providing the statewide elementary and end-of-course exams.
