Ethics and Assessment
Ethical conduct on the part of educators and students is one component of assessment that assures that a test is valid for the purpose for which it is used.
A good testing program provides critical information to:
- Community Members
- School and System
The integrity of the assessment process is critical to all we do as educators.
