The U.S. Department of Education approved a request Tuesday to stop requiring Oklahoma middle school students testing in Algebra I, Algebra II or Geometry to also take the grade-level math assessment.

The approval came at the request of the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

In a news release, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister said the decision, which applies to this school year, eliminates double-testing for some students in the subject of mathematics.
