Students and teachers will be "held harmless" from the results of the Common Core tests until the 2019-20 school year, the state Board of Regents said Monday, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The board's committee voted on panel recommendations upon its review of the standardized tests and their usefulness to assess student and teacher performance, the article says.
