Oregon To Let Students Use Spell Check on State Exams

Starting in 2011, the Oregon Department of Education will let students spell check their work before submitting state exams. From the article: “The move is supposed to help the assessments focus less on typos and more on their writing skills. ‘We are not letting a student’s keyboarding skills get in the way of being able to judge their writing ability,’ said state Superintendent Susan Castillo. ‘As we’re using technology to improve what we’re doing with assessments as a nation, we believe that spell check will be one of those tools.’”
