Rome City Schools,
508 E. Second Street,
Students in Rome City Schools began the CRCT last week. The Criterion-Referenced Competency Test is administered to all students in grades 3-8 in reading, English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. All principals, testing coordinators, test examiners, and proctors have gone through extensive training on test security, distribution and collection of testing materials, administration of the test, and professional ethics. If there is a breach of testing security, professional ethics, improper handling of materials, or improper administration of the test; the state has provided procedures that will be followed. The procedures include an investigation and protocol for reporting to the state department.
