School board member questions CRCT re-test

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County school board member questions whether some students are being promoted who shouldn't be.

Third, fifth and eighth graders who failed the CRCT had to pass a 60 question re-test in order to be promoted to the next grade level.

The state did not require retesting for other grade levels, but Dougherty County required a 10-question retest. Board member David Maschke isn't sure that's enough.

"Each student would be required to pass 7 of the 10 questions. My concern is the degree of difficulty and whether a 10 question test is really an adequate measure relative to the 60 question test that were given previously," said District 1 School Board Member, David Maschke.

Maschke also said he had heard that some students were able to take that 10 question re-test more than once while others weren't. The School System agreed to investigate those claims.
