ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County Schools Testing Coordinator will have some homework this weekend, as the state releases student by student information on questionable CRCT answer documents.

The state sent the information on CD's Friday. Dougherty Schools continue to push the state for the release of first and second grade test documents that the state refuses to make available. Testing Coordinator Renee Bridges hopes the student information might give the system a better idea of where the problems are.

"She will pick up the disk and work on it all weekend and try to pull things out of it that would give us an indication to help us understand the level of erasures on our student test data," said R.D. Harter, DCSS Public Information Officer.

The state ordered Dougherty County to investigate 14 schools that had a high number of classrooms with suspiciously high numbers of wrong CRCT answers that were changed to right answers. Local school leaders complain the state is hampering their investigation by limiting their access to test answer sheets.
