HISD finds signs of cheating on state tests
Evidence of two teachers alerting students to mistakes on big exams
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; The Houston Independent School District has uncovered evidence that teachers at two elementary schools helped students cheat on state exams, and educators at two other campuses offered questionable assistance.
In the most serious cases, students from Lockhart and Cornelius said teachers alerted them to wrong answers on high-stakes exams, and an analysis of test booklets from Cornelius showed suspicious erasures changing wrong responses to right ones.
The probes also raised questions about the actions of teachers during testing at Tinsley and Scott elementary schools but found no outright cheating, according to HISD reports released to the Houston Chronicle in response to a public records request.
