Bill prompted by Mills AP test invalidations passes Assembly
August 07, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — Legislation responding to hundreds of invalidated Advanced Placement exams because of a seating mistake at a San Francisco Bay Area high school seeks to stop similar problems from happening again.

The bill changing how testing irregularities are investigated passed the Assembly on a 75-0 vote Thursday.

Democratic state Sen. Jerry Hill of San Mateo introduced SB915 after protests last year from hundreds of students at Mills High School in Millbrae when their tests went unscored.

While students could retake their exams in August, some already had left for college. Hill’s legislation would create an expedited timeline for investigations and new testing.

It also requires test administrators to record where students sat during exams. A lack of documentation delayed the Mills investigation.

SB915 heads back to the Senate to approve amendments.
