Testing Firm to Pay for Errors in Scoring

November 26, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The testing company that wrongly scored thousands of exams required for high school graduation agreed to pay up to $7 million to students as part of a settlement, attorneys announced in St. Paul.

Students who did not get to attend their graduation ceremonies will be eligible for up to $16,000. Those who went through the ceremonies but experienced some lesser consequences, such as being forced to attend summer school, would receive less.

NCS Pearson used the wrong answer key on 47,000 tests given in February and April 2000.
