SACRAMENTO - Nearly 250 California schools have been flagged due to issues of security during standardized testing.

A news released issued by the California Dept. of Education (CDOE) confirmed 242 schools had been identified where social media postings had occurred during testing, 16 of which included postings of actual test questions or answers.

Accoridng to the CDOE release, "none of the postings affected test results."

"We take the validity and reliability of our assessments very seriously, and our schools do too, which is why we redoubled our efforts to monitor these postings and alerted school districts when they occurred," said Deputy Superintendent Deb Sigman, who oversees assessments and accountability issues for CDE. "These postings look to be attempts by students to gain attention among their friends, not an effort to gain an advantage on a test."

The release also stated a security breach affecting less than five percent of the number of students tested can result in disqualification of academic awards. If that breach affects more than five percent of students tested, the school's measure of accountability can be invalidated.

The CDOE attributed their ability to discover the incidents to rigorous monitoring, random security audits, proper instruction to examiners and testing coordinators on proper protocol, and reinforcement to officials of the responsibility to maintain security on all test material.
