New York Regents May Keep Teachers From Grading Own Students - NYTimes.com

Interesting idea. I would love to see Regents exams being graded on the computer in some form of adaptive testing software that is currently used for GRE, MCAT etc. This would require more investment into infrastructures within our public system. Think big.

"New York Regents May Keep Teachers From Grading Own Students - NYTimes.com: The New York State Board of Regents will decide Monday whether to bar teachers from grading their own students’ standardized tests, a longstanding practice that state officials say creates a temptation for educators to cheat in an era of high-stakes exams.
The ban, which would start in the 2012-13 school year, would require districts to score tests in other schools, on computers or in regional centers. The change would most likely cause Regents exams, now held just before graduation, to be held earlier in the spring and could lead to additional costs for districts."
