This case brought by the Professional Standards Commission involved allegations that a teacher had completed online quiz questions for a student with special needs.  The student in question did not go to the teacher’s school, but rather was the child of the teacher’s supervisor.  The teacher testified at the hearing that she did provide answers for two of the quiz’s questions, though she maintained she did not know the quiz was a graded assignment.  The Court concluded that, while the teacher did commit at least one violation of the Code of Ethics for Educators, the violation’s impact was minimal and did not warrant a sanction.
