Proctors

How many of you have proctors for state testing? We are required and at my school we all have proctors for any type of state mandated testing. I was surprised to find out that some of the schools in my district don't have proctors for testing. I also discovered that some other school districts let the teacher give the test whenever they want during the testing window. Things like this make me wonder why some schools always have high test scores.

Some districts do not require a proctor if class size is under a certain number. I have taught in a school that did not require one, I think I had 18 kids in 3rd gr. The Principal in the school I moved to later always uses proctors. As she put it, proctors are insurance that there can't be a chance for any cheating.

We have to go through a yearly training and proctor our own class. I can't imagine having outside proctors for elementary school. It's stressful enough on them as it is.

In the schools I've worked in teachers have always been trained to proctor state tests. Are you saying outside people come in just to give the state test? I've never heard of that!

Teachers are the proctors for their class and then specialists have to be the proctors for kids that need accommodations, since they often can't be in the same room (if they need small group, extended time, etc.) Pretty much every certified person in the building has to drop everything during state testing time.

Yep!

And I can't imagine schools spending money for strangers to come watch the kids take a test? I've never heard of that.

2 adults in a room

We have 2 adults in the room. THe teacher and the proctor. The teacher will hand out the test, then administer it. The proctor is there to ensure that there is no cheating by students or the teacher. Liike Needmyjob stated, this ensures that no one can be accused of cheating.Testing is a serious thing at our school. No one is allowed in the room where materials are kept, no one is allowed to look at the test etc. The only time there isn't a proctor is when a student is taking the alternate assessment for sped. We have proctors for NWEA and all other state assessments.

We still have proctors for online testing as well. No one can be hinting at answers, etc.

Were sent by state department of ed not hired by our school department. They were pretty random about which school and/or class was monitored. They only observed, did not speak with students. We had one school get almost perfect math scores one year and all those classrooms were monitored the following year. Funny, their scores went way down!
