State wants closer look at exams of 34 NJ schools

    The New Jersey Department of Education has issued a letter to 34 New Jersey Public Schools indicating it wants a closer look at exams and procedures.

    In a report from NJ Spotlight, the Department of Education on Tuesday released an analysis compiled over the past three years that looked at patterns of erasures on the state’s standardized tests.

    According to the report, in the case of the 34 schools, there were too many erasures from wrong to right answers.

    NJ Spotlight says state officials stressed they were making no direct accusations, but were only asking questions.
