Thrown Out LEAP Test Scores Concern Parents

The Acadia Parish School Board is investigating the testing environment of a 4th grade classroom at South Crowley Elementary.

School officials questioned students Wednesday after a significant amount of their LEAP test scores were voided due to excessive erasures.

Parents tell TV 10 they received a letter from the superintendent notifying them their child did not pass the test. This letter states that students must attend a summer remediation program and retest in June to have the option to appeal their original test scores.

The superintendent says that according to test guidelines, when you finish the test you are encouraged to go back and re-read to possibly catch wrong answers.

The superintendent also says unfortunately it was the large number of erasures causing them to be flagged by the state.

As for the teachers administering the test, school officials tell us there were two in the room during the test.

School officials are continuing to investigate the situation and say they will compile a report to send to the state.
