An apparent prank by a Monterery High student — posting part of a standardized test online — resulted in a "cautionary flag" on the school's score, though state education officials acknowledged the intent appeared to an effort to show off a doodle, not to cheat.
Once Burbank Unified school officials discovered the posting of the California Standardized Testing and Reporting exam item, they immediately removed it, said Sharon Cuseo, director of instruction and accountability for Burbank Unified.
"A student uploaded a test item that he doodled on," she said.
State officials stated the posting did not affect the final test results at the continuation school. Students at 15 other schools statewide, including two in the Los Angeles Unified School District, had similar issues with online postings.
