Schools are hoping to avoid the suspicion raised in February when a statewide audit of last year's Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests showed an unusually high number of erasures on thousands of tests. About 75 schools that had the highest number of erasures are required to have state-placed monitors to oversee their tests.
But even schools that weren't flagged by the state are revamping testing policies.
Some schools are making teachers oversee the testing of students who aren't theirs. Others have hired extra test proctors to watch as students fill in answers.
The audit was done by the Governor's Office of Student Achievement.
