This study was an attempt to better measure teacher's perceptions of ethical assessment behavior. A new instrument, the Educators' Perceptions of Ethical Assessment Practice (EPEAP) was developed. The EPEAP is a combination of 30 ethical and unethical assessment scenarios. Standards set by the Joint Committee for Ethical Evaluation Standards  were used as the basis for denoting correct or incorrect participant answers. Participants were 133 in-service and pre-service teachers selected from an education program at an urban midwestern university. Chi-square analyses showed that on 10 items, statistically significant differences were found between pre-service and in-service teachers. Results show a need to further investigate ethical assessment in order to facilitate new ways to create educators better versed in ethical assessment practices.
Presented to the 10th Annual Symposium on Graduate Research and Scholarly Projects (GRASP) held at the Heskett Center, Wichita State University, April 25, 2014.
