New details of tampering in standardized tests out, NYTimes

A report published in NYTimes revealed there have been 1,250 accusations of test tampering or grade changing across city schools since Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg took control of the public schools system.

Of that number, 14 cases had been substantiated including one against a teacher at Middle School 219 in the Bronx. The teacher received a 90-day suspension without pay after investigators claimed he had written answers on the back of paper rulers for the eighth-grade math examinees. The teacher has denied the allegations.

In another case a Bronx assistant principal at the High School for Contemporary Arts was found of tampering with student answers on the June 2008 algebra Regents exam. The assistant principal had been dismissed.
