ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A panel that went to Indiana to look over Dougherty CRCT's acknowledges there were a high number of erasures on the documents they saw.

Three investigators spent eight hours examining the tests. They were unable to determine whether all those erasures changed wrong answers to right, though, because they didn't have the companion answer sheet.

"I'm certain that they were able to look at total erasures and we did get information from the Office of Student achievement executive director Kathleen Mathers today, they're sending us additional information so we hope to get that early next week," said Dr. Sally Whatley, Dougherty County Schools Superintendent.

Eventually, the panel will provide Dougherty County Administrators with a report of what they've observed with the tests.

Dougherty Administrators say they're still pushing to see first and second grade test results where the majority of the erasures occurred.

So far, their requests have been denied.
