4.Once districts, schools, and individual students have been identified, the state superintendent of education sends letters to district superintendents stating that students in those districts have been identified as having excessive wrong-to-right erasures. Based on the number of erasures found, scores for students exceeding the four-standard-deviation criterion will be voided. Individual student reports from the testing program will reflect the voided scores. In the aggregation of scores at the school, district, and state levels, each voided score will have the effect of a zero score. Copies of the District/School and Student Erasure Analysis reports are enclosed with the letters. Copies of the correspondence are provided to the deputy superintendent of education, the assistant superintendent of the Office of Student and School Performance, the director of the Division of Assessments and Accountability, and the district test coordinator.
