Pre-Calculus Mathematics: Marking Guide (January 2009) 73 IRREGULARITIES IN STANDARDS TESTS A GUIDE FOR LOCAL MARKING The Administration Manual and the Policies and Procedures for Standards Tests are distributed to teachers and administrators to ensure consistency in the administration of standards tests. These documents deal with the issues of test material security and the Department’s policy regarding adaptations and exemptions. During the marking of standards tests, markers have occasionally encountered test booklets in which there have been irregularities. The following list provides some examples of such irregularities: Completely different penmanship in the same test booklet Incoherent work with correct answers Notes from a teacher indicating how he or she has assisted students during the test administration Student offering that he or she received teacher assistance for a question Student submitting work on unauthorized paper Evidence of plagiarism or cheating If a student’s mark on the test is 0% because he or she answered with all non-responses (“NR”), all inappropriate responses (“0”), or a combination of both, please complete an Irregular Test Booklet Report to confirm that the result is accurate (i.e., the student was not, in fact, absent or exempted). Please note that student comments or responses indicating that the student may be at personal risk of being harmed or of harming others are personal safety issues. This type of student response requires an immediate and appropriate follow-up action at the school level. In this case, please ensure the Department is made aware that a follow-up has taken place by completing an Irregular Test Booklet Report . Except in the case of cheating or plagiarism where the result is a standards test mark of 0%, it is the responsibility of the division or the school to determine how they will proceed with irregularities. Once an irregularity has been confirmed, the marker prepares an Irregular Test Booklet Report documenting the situation, the people contacted, and the follow-up. The original copy of this report is to be retained by the local jurisdiction and a copy is to be sent to the Instruction, Curriculum and Assessment Branch along with all other test materials.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
