Ohio probes proficiency-test breach


Published: Sat, March 11, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.


PARMA (AP) -- The state is investigating whether a teacher in this Cleveland suburb handed out part of a state proficiency test to fourth-grade pupils in advance, the Ohio Department of Education said Friday.
After the tests were administered Wednesday, a fourth-grader said the math questions were familiar, Parma Superintendent Sarah Zatik said.
An elementary school teacher had apparently passed out copies of the math portion of the test a day earlier as a study guide for 64 fourth-graders at State Road Elementary School.
The teacher, whose name was not disclosed, is on paid leave while the district investigates.
There have been about 20 confirmed security breaches since testing began in the mid-1990s, Education Department spokesman J.C. Benton said.
