School officials now have a better idea of what a transition test will look like as the state moves away from PARCC testing.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, Lieutenant Governor Howie Morales sent out a memo to school officials about the transition test.
The memo states the test will be an hour and a half shorter per subject than PARCC.
It also states the test will have a different design, but will be delivered on the same computer testing platform.
He says there will be webinars next for staff and administrators to learn about the new test.
The memo comes out a week after Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed an Executive Order ending PARCC.
Morales tells the Journal the state is still developing a test that will completely replace PARCC.
That test will have to be approved federally.
