Another Bad Headline For The Testing Industry...& For Advocates of National Testing

Day by day, it seems, the environment for national testing just gets worse and worse: Test service reaches deal in error suits (AP).

According to this story, ETS is putting up over $11.1 million to pay damages to thousands of teachers who were given incorrect scores on a licensing exam in 2003 and 2004.

It's neither fair nor right, but the public and the politicians won't support an expansion or change in the American testing system if the testing system (scoring, test security) doesn't seem solid.

And right now it doesn't seem solid.
