After administering the CRCT-M, a modified version of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT), Petitioner, an educator, described the content of the test in text messages to her colleague, who had yet to administer the CRCT.  The Professional Standards Commission (PSC) found that Petitioner’s conduct violated the Code of Ethics for Educators and recommended a two-year suspension of Petitioner’s teaching certificate, which the Court affirmed.
