Statutory Authority These rules were amended and combined with 1 CCR 301-54 Rules for the Administration of the ACT Assessment on a National Test Date to reflect the amendments of HB 15-1323. The statutory basis for these rules is found in 22-2-106(1)(a) and (c), C.R.S., State Board Duties; 22-2-107(1)(c), State Board Powers; and 22-7-1006.3 State assessments administration rules.
Description of Subjects/Issues The purpose of the proposed amendments to the Rules for the Administration of the ACT Assessment on a National Test Day, 1 CCR 301-54 and Rules for the Administration of the College Entrance Exam, 1 CCR 301-46 is to streamline and consolidate into a single set of rules 1 CCR 301-46. The statutory basis for amendments to these rules adopted in 2016 is 22-7-1006.3, C.R.S. following the passage of H.B. 15-1323. H.B. 15-1323 made numerous amendments to the administration of state assessments, including the college entrance exam. Specifically, 22-7-1006.3(2)(c)(II), C.R.S. allows any student who shows a need to take the college entrance exam on a date on which the exam is administered throughout the country may take the exam on such a date, prior to the date established by the department pursuant to 22-7-1006.3(2)(c)(I), C.R.S. The Department shall pay all costs associated with a student taking the college entrance exam pursuant to 22-7-1006.3(2)(c)(II), C.R.S. In addition, the State Board is required to adopt rules pursuant to 22-7-1006.3(2)(d) to ensure that any requirements of the administrator of the college entrance exam, such as a secure environment, are met and to identify the level of need that a student must demonstrate to take the college entrance exam on a date on which the exam is administered throughout the country.
Purpose/Objective of Rule As part of rule clean up and streamlining, we have drafted revised language for 1 CCR 301-46 RULES FOR THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAM. In addition, we are recommending that 1 CCR 301-54 RULES FOR THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE ACT ASSESSMENT ON A NATIONAL TEST DATE be deleted in its entirety. H.B. 15-1323 requires the Board to adopt rules to ensure the requirements of the administrator of the college entrance exam, such as security requirements, are met and to identify the level of need that a student must demonstrate to take the college entrance exam on an alternate, national test date.
