In order to ensure the validity of the composite ratings of 12th grade performance used for purposes of this article, the State Department of Education shall develop procedures for the 12th grade for the proctoring of tests administered as part of the testing program by persons not employed by the school district administering the test. At least one proctor shall be present in each classroom used for the administration of the test while the test is being conducted.
The proctor assigned to each classroom shall be given the responsibility of delivering the completed test forms to the State Department of Education for scoring. The department shall elicit assistance from geographically distributed county offices of education in developing and implementing these procedures.
