The Assembly approved the measure Thursday.

he Assembly also passed another bill that would give students in all grades subject to state-mandated testing the option to opt out of taking them.

The measure expands current law which allows parents to opt their children out of taking tests in grades 4, 8 and 9-11. The bill would expand the opt-out option to grades 3-11.

The opt-out provision in state law was never expanded after state testing expanded to additional grades.

Both bills passed on voice votes without debate and now head to the Senate.
