Write a 300- to 500-word response to the following:
- When an emergency occurs during the administration of a high stakes test, what measures should be taken to ensure the integrity of the test results? Describe a situation when a breach in testing security or administration protocol during a high-stakes testing session resulted in serious consequences. How did the school respond to the breach? Was the response appropriate? Recommend alternative responses.
Include your own experience as well as two citations that align with or contradict your comments as sourced from peer-reviewed academic journals, industry publications, books, and/or other sources. Cite your sources using APA formatting.
If you found contradicting information to what your experience tells you, explain why you agree or disagree with the research.
Read others’ posts and respond in 250-300 words to at least one of your course colleagues. Why do you agree or disagree with their post? What in your experience or research supports your assertions?
