LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Indiana's School Superintendent wants $614,000 in damages from CTB/McGraw-Hill for testing problems that disrupted the exams for nearly 80,000 students last month.
Glenda Ritz says $400,000 of that money would be fines covered in the company's $95 million contract with the state. The rest of the money would pay for an independent review of the testing data underway and for better reporting data from the ISTEP+ tests.
A McGraw-Hill spokesman said company President Ellen Haley would answer questions later Friday, after she testifies before a joint House and Senate education committee investigating the testing problems.
Administration of the state's standardized test was thrown into chaos after online tests began freezing for hours at a time. The results are used to calculate teacher pay and school grades.
Superintendent Ritz said in a news release, "The consequences of CTB's server failures were real and significant for Indiana schools. As Superintendent, I will work to ensure that schools are made whole while continuing to negotiate with CTB in good faith."
