ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Criterion Referenced Competency Tests began Monday in school districts across the state.

In eight Dougherty County Elementary Schools, there is intense scrutiny from the state. State monitors were in the eight elementary schools that landed in the severe category for a high number of erasures in the statewide audit of last years exams.

About 75 schools that had the highest number of wrong answers changed to right answers are required to have state monitors oversee their tests.

Media representative are not being permitted in the buildings during testing, although some community partners are being permitted to observe the process.

Dougherty County School Officials say other than routine problems such as a student getting sick on an answer document Monday morning's testing went as planned. Students were given time outside after the morning session.
