Schools Manipulate Pupils' Test Scores

Thirty high schools in the Netherlands have given their pupils' a bonus of more than one point in test scores which are taken into account when evaluating the students. Four of these schools are in Amsterdam, where the greatest discrepancy was found at the Islamic College. There the difference between the school test scores and the national written exam is 1.5 points. Nationally the greatest discrepancy is at the Panta Rhei school in the Amsterdam suburb Amstelveen, where pupils were given a bonus of 1.8 points.
