Despite screwups, Missouri's testing company may keep Oklahoma contract

Standardized testing is a nightmare at any time in our nation's school districts, but it was even more so for Oklahoma school districts last year when their tests, which were provided by McGraw-Hill ran into one problem after another.

Those problems, which included numerous computer failures, and which have the company under investigation by the Oklahoma attorney general, apparently were not enough to keep the Oklahoma Board of Education from considering awarding the testing contact to McGraw-Hill again.

What's worse, McGraw-Hill is the company which is providing the online tests for Missouri school districts this year as the first Common Core State Standards tests are given.
