Revocation of Petitioner’s teaching certificate was reversed. Petitioner, a school principal during the 2008-2009 school year, was alleged to have encouraged test proctors for the Criterion Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) to prompt students to change wrong answers. While an analysis of test answers indicated that 52.2% of answers sheets contained an exceptional number of erasures of wrong to correct answers, the evidence indicating wrongdoing on Petitioner’s part was inconsistent and not found to be credible.
