School Test Erasures Decline
This year the number of erasures seen on standardized tests was lower according to reports.
Last year the number of erasures on tests caused alarm, which has turned into the CRCT cheating scandal. Kathleen Mathers of the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement says that the number of schools falling into the category with implications of cheating, has dropped to less than 10.
Mathers also said that the new monitors placed in classrooms helped provide a controlled environment, so a repeat of last year did not occur. A full investigation continues, to determine what actually took place last year in those classrooms.
Several administrators, and teachers have been reassigned due to the CRCT investigation.
