Douglas County Test Security Plan
The Douglas County Board of Education implements the assessment program specified by the State Board of Education and the state school superintendent. Testing includes all state mandated tests as well as local assessments.
The test is administered in accordance with the requirements of the governing agency for the assessment and with a high level of security to ensure an appropriate testing environment, the integrity of the assessment and the validity of the data provided by the assessment.
In accordance with the guidelines provided by the State Board of Education and the Professional Standards Commission each test is administered in such a way that prevents, mitigates and reports any irregularities arising at any time before, during or after testing. Testing Coordinators and other employees have an obligation and are trained to report testing irregularities and those who do so in good faith will not be subject to any reprisal.
Employees must comply with all Douglas County School’s policies and Georgia Professional Standards Commission rules with regard to testing ethics. Employees who violate these provisions shall be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
