Testing Wisconsin students with the new assessments aligned with the Common Core standards is expected to cost at least $7.2 million over the original estimate, according to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).
The Wisconsin State Journal reports DPI’s 2015-2017 budget calls for $17.9 million for the next academic year and $18.5 million for the 2016-2017 school year, for the administration of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) assessment. The amount requested is approximately $7.2 million more than what is appropriated already.
