STATE DIGNITARIES MEET WITH ACT OFFICIALS REGARDING MIXUP

A disagreement over ACT scores withheld from students at two Tennessee high schools could lead to the state to consider moving to a rival assessment test. State officials met with ACT officials this week in an unsuccessful attempt to persuade them to validate the scores of students who took the test last month. The two schools that were involved in the affected ACT tests were York Institute in Fentress County and Bearden High School. Those tests were deemed to have been “mis-administered” because students were given the October 3 version of ACT when they took their assessments on October 17. State officials “made it clear” that the state could instead decide to go with the rival SAT, the assessment test owned by the nonprofit College Board.
