Errors Found in Standardized Test Results (Aug 24, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma schools Superintendent Janet Barresi wants a review of the contract with a testing company after errors were found in final standardized test results sent this month to schools statewide.

The errors by Pearson Education Inc. were discovered after many districts received what was called the final data. Pearson officials did not respond to requests for comment.

The test results are used by schools to develop classroom instruction plans and help determine if schools are making the required progress under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

The data can lead to schools being placed on a list of poor-performers. Reading scores determine whether a student can get a driver's license and — starting this year — the test results also mean the difference between a senior graduating or not.
