Some Texas students will take the state's standardized test later than originally planned so that it won't coincide with Election Day.

The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills was set to start on March 4th, but that's the same day as Texas' primary elections.

Many schools serve as polling places, and some superintendents were afraid students would be distracted by voters while they took the TAKS test.

Now, tests scheduled for March 4-6 will be given a day later than originally scheduled.


TAKS test rescheduled:

OLD DATE: MARCH 4TH - 6TH

NEW DATE: MARCH 7TH-9TH
