Right stuff

15th March 1996 at 00:00
In the light of events in the House of Commons following the publication of the Scott Report, I have informed our local education authority that we will be amending our practice in the marking of children's tests. In future, incorrect answers will be deemed to be inadvertent. This means that wrong answers will now be marked right unless it can be shown that there was a clear intention to deceive.
