In a letter to the governor Thursday, BESE and White offer to continue using the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program testing format used this year, which contained Louisiana-based questions in social studies and science and some questions taken from an exam compiled by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers in math and English/language arts. The plan is to supplement regular LEAP test questions with PARCC questions that were formulated by Louisiana teachers and supervisors.
