FCAT testing company also has problems in Minnesota

Several sources reported that the troubled testing company, which had several problems with Florida's FCAT, incorrectly scored the state-mandated science tests given to fifth- and eighth-grade students Minnesota.  Pearson, who facilitates these assessments, confirmed the issue and was working to resolve it, according to correspondence between the testing company and the Minnesota Department of Education.

The news comes a week after the Florida Department of Education hired two independent auditors to review this year's FCAT scores after finding widespread irregularities in the data.

Details to come.
