As much as your idea makes sense to those of us in the trenches, I'm
afraid the non-trusting "powers that be" above us would have this type of

"The guiding teacher may not know who's exam is being discussed, but they
would know that it is one of their students which could bias their
response in favor of a higher score."

It's such a lousy feeling.....not being treated as a professional....not
being trusted.....all because of a few "bad apples". It's somewhat the
same as why we all have to remove our shoes at an airport....all because
of one human being. Ridiculous!

I wish you luck in your search for a solution. I think regional scoring
is your best option.
