Administering Results for Negotiations
It would go too far to speculate that this sort of thing is widespread:
Statewide testing procedures were violated at Whiteknact Elementary School last October when at least 14 third graders were given extra time, the state Department of Education has concluded.
And now school officials are looking into whether another violation occurred when the standardized tests for students in grades 3 through 5 were administered at Whiteknact. …
Barbosa also said her daughter, also a Whiteknact student, told her that the person who administered the standardized tests in her classroom prompted the students with answers. Barbosa did not disclose what grade her daughter is in Tuesday night and she could not be reached Wednesday morning.
Students’ success on these tests has a direct bearing on contract negotiations, and especially given other tactics of unionized workforces, it’s reasonable to suggest that perhaps some third party should direct and supervise the test taking.
