Statewide Testing

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:

  • Students
  • Teachers
  • Community Members
  • Parents
  • School and System
  • Administrators
 

The integrity of the assessment process is critical to all we do as educators.
