Issues and concerns about ethics and integrity in testing procedures

Discussion 1
Issues and concerns about ethics and integrity in testing procedures continue to plague American public schools. False reporting of student achievement data, teacher help in the form of filling in answers on student scoring sheets, and other issues have been made public and have caused educational leaders to lose their jobs because of a lack of integrity and ethics.

Research 2 examples from the literature, your organization, a newspaper, journal, or other media in which a lack of integrity and ethics have impacted school districts’ assessment of student learning.
Write a 250- to 300-word response to the following:
• Synthesize the situations and the results of any investigations into the incidents.
• Share what you would have done to rectify the situations had you been the person in charge (e.g., principal, superintendent). Cite 2 peer-reviewed journal articles to support the actions that you chose.
• If you found contradicting information to what your experience tells you, explain why you agree or disagree with the research.
• Include links to the examples you found in your response.

Discussion 2
Read the following blog posts:
• “A Few Ideas for Dealing with Late Work” from Cult of Pedagogy
• “Do No-Zero Policies Help or Hurt Students?” from Edutopia®

No-zero policies require teachers to give a partial credit grade to a student who did not submit the assignment. The argument is that having a zero or multiple zeroes creates a mathematical situation from which a student cannot recover (Minero, 2018). But in adopting a no-zero policy, consider what message is being sent to students.
Write a 250- to 300-word response to the following:
• Discuss your thoughts about messages that no-zero policies give to students.
• Share how you would revise the policy based upon what you know and believe to be right for the students you serve.
