Inquiry into national standards tampering
A Northland primary school has asked an independent reviewer to investigate tampering with its students' national standards results.
Parua Bay School told parents last week that the results of 17 students were inappropriately altered in 2013, but does not know who was responsible.
The Ministry of Education said on Monday the school's board has told it that it is unclear what happened and who is involved, and it has brought in an independent reviewer to investigate more fully.
The board said the data altered in its computer system has been corrected and the tampering was a one-off event that will not be repeated.
