Study: As Few As Three Test Responses Separate A From F Schools In Oklahoma

Lead in text: 
Oklahoma's transition to an A-to-F grading system for its public schools continues to receive criticism. A study from researchers at Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma indicates the new school accountability program also hides poor academic performance by low-income and minority students.
As few as three correct responses on Oklahoma state tests can separate those schools receiving an A grade from those receiving an F under the state's accountability system, according to a paper released by the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University this month that says the system has many flaws, among them that it hides the poor performance of racial minorities and low-income students.
