Phasing in new testing for Common Core

In a story today, I look at the ramifications of moving to the Common Core standards and a new set of tests.  When the state school board discussed the issue last month, it sounded an alarm about online testing. They don't believe that school districts have enough technology to mandate the tests be done online. In addition, there's a concern that children will get too much testing the year that the old tests and new tests overlap.
