CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Students at some Cheyenne-area schools aren't done with standardized testing for the year.

Some Laramie County School District 1 students are taking a pilot test through the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.

Marc LaHiff, the district's director of instruction, says the decision on whether to finish the trial was left up to individual schools. Some opted out.

LaHiff says students can get tired of tests if they're given too many in a short period.

He also says that because state officials haven't decided on the future of standardized testing, some school officials are wondering why they should participate in pilot programs.
