New statewide testing protocols

Just out yesterday from the state: new statewide MCAS testing protocols. You can find the protocols here; the sample document that principals have to sign is here.All principals must now undergo state training, must document the distribution of materials, and must require non-disclosure agreements of all those administering the test to those with disabilities. Superintendents must obtain signed copies of the security vow from each principal.

And if all of this sounds familiar, it's parallel to some of what was required in Worcester last year, after the Goddard investigation.
