Columbus Dispatch

Surprised there hasn’t been more attention on the unfolding fraud scandal in Columbus, OH – the nation’s test market for everything.  Cheating is only one part of the problem, there are serious allegations of contract-fixing and inappropriate data scrubbing, too.  As a result what’s unfolding doesn’t fit cleanly into the narrative about tests with stakes for adults causing all this. But it’s worth keeping an eye on, could be a big story.

  1. The reporters gave a great talk at EWA13 last about how they uncovered and interpreted the data. Best tip: know a data specialist on the inside. Also, the cheating wasn’t just test scores. Attendance rates were changed as well, according to the reporting team.
