After reading all your comments, I have to wonder when administration will
be taken into account. Without mentioning names, I have seen exam scores
changed so the score is passing. I am not sure why teachers are always the
first to be scrutinized when all parents have to do is call the building
principals and "bang" a changed score. When are administrators ( maybe
parents???) going to be held accountable?

For testing situations, I have seen a whirlwind of testing situations such
as a certified health teacher being a head proctor of a Geometry Regents
exam. My opinion ...really stupid! The proctor accepted papers with
pencils written as solutions.( No they were not graphs or diagrams) The proctor
odviously didn't know how to address student questions. Then, I have seen
white out used on special ed student papers. So the state really thinks
having other teachers proctor our students paper would be beneficial to the
kids?? Sounds more like a head ache and potential parent complaints...

I must say, I do enjoy reading all your ideas and concerns. Even if there
is some disagreements, everyone brings so much to the table that I wish
the state would slow down and not make quick decisions that effects our
