Description

"'The Fix is In' presented strong statistical evidence, as well as anecdotal evidence, of repeated cheating on the state's standardized test for public school students, the TAAS. According to sources and the statistical evidence, educators were improving their schools' aggregate scores by changing students' answers.... 'Adding it All Up' examined the TAAS itself. The test is the linchpin of Texas' widely touted educational accountability system."
