Questions raised over Exit Exam
SACRAMENTO--A new report casts some doubt on the value of California’s high school Exit Exam.
A study at Stanford University found declining graduation rates of girls and minority students.
State Assembly Speaker Karen Bass says the study reinforces her concerns since the inception of the Exit Exam.
“The dramatically more negative effects of the exam on girls and on students of color, the biased signal it sends to employers, and the lack of promised improvements in student achievement are very troubling.”
Ms. Bass says the time has come to decide whether the Exit Exam can be fixed or is “fatally flawed”.
